Here is a short rhyme to help you remember the formula for sulfuric acid.

Johnny was a chemist,

Johnny is no more,

What Johnny thought was H2O,

was H2SO4 !

or

Johnny was a chemist,

Johnny is no more,

What Johnny thought was H two O,

was H two S O four! 

(H2O = water, H2SO4 = Sulfuric acid)

Charging a flat car battery

Sulfuric acid is used as the electrolyte in car batteries. The danger of charging a flat car battery too fast is that hydrogen gas is also produced. Electrical sparks have caused car batteries that have been charged too fast to explode with dangerous results. I know of one person who was permanently blinded by an exploding battery. That's why they it's best to slowly charge a flat battery over night!
