Make Concentrated Sulfuric from Battery Acid

Hello everybody. Now we are going to make concentrated sulfuric acid from battery acid. Also you can use other types of sulfuric acid. However concentrated sulfuric acid is extremely dangerous. So you must be careful when working with it.
                                   In this experiment I used battery acid. It has 29% to 32% of sulfuric acid. It means, if we get 50ml of battery acid, there will be 15ml of sulfuric acid (in 30% solution). Sulfuric acid is boiling at 337 0C. (In 300 0C, it will decompose slowly) But water is boiling at 1000C. So we can heat and remove water from solution.
