Aromatic Alkylation

Given that the PKa of H2SO4 is -9 and that of HNO3 is -1.4, explain why nitration occurs more rapidly in a mixture of concentrated nitric and sulfuric acids than in concentrated nitric acid alone. Make sure you use equations and the mechanism of formation of the nitronium ion(NO2+) to support your answer.
