5 H2SO4 + 2 NH3 + 2 K2FeO4 → 8 H2O + 2 K2SO4 + N2 + Fe2(SO4)3
This is an acid-base reaction (neutralization): H2SO4 is an acid, NH3 is a base.
This is an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction:
2 N-III - 6 e- → 2 N0 (oxidation)
2 FeVI + 6 e- → 2 FeIII (reduction)
NH3 is a reducing agent, K2FeO4 is an oxidizing agent.
