The weight of a compound that contains ONE EQUIVALENT of a proton (for acid) or ONE EQUIVALENT of an hydroxide (for base). Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound with the formula H2O2. It is the simplest peroxide (a compound with an oxygen-oxygen single bond).it can furnish 2 mol of H+ ions per molecule. One mol of H2O2 can furnish two mol of H+. However we only need one mol of H+. Therefore, divide by two. 1/2 mol H2O2 = 1 equivalent of H2O2


Equivalent weight is used for calculating normality of the solutions in chemistry
