How Do Acids React With Metals

Extracts from this document...


HOW DO AcIDS REACT WITH METALS? Seren SAPMAZ 9C 582 Purpose: To observe the reaction of metals with acids, and to determine the forming of salt and hydrogen gases' Materials: 6 Test tubes 6 Test tubes (bigger than others,to collect the hydrogen gas inside it) Test tube clamp 2 Beakers (100 ml) Dropper Safety glasses Electronic heater Hydrochloric acid, Sulphuric acid A piece of Zinc A piece of Aluminum A piece of Copper Procedure: 1. ...read more.


4. Take another 3 test tubes above the tube number 1, 2 and 3 to collect the gas formed. 5. Repeat step 4 using Sulphuric acid instead of Hydrochloric acid, on test tubes 4,5 and 6 . Metal After HCl H2 Test After H2S04 H2 Test Zn Reaction Hydrogen Reaction Hydrogen Al Reaction Hydrogen Reaction No H2 but SO4 Cu No reaction No H2 No reaction No H2 Concluison: We have done this experiment and observed how the reaction between acids and metals is. ...read more.


To make an experiments with acids are very dangerous, so that we wore safety glasses to protect our eyes from the acids.We turned the aspirator on to protect our lungs from the poison gas, SO2 We determined the behaviour of Cu towards to acids and there was no reaction with neither HCl nor. But Zn gives reaction with acids.Those experiments explicitly show us that noble metals and semi noble metals, such as Al, Ag, Hg, Pt, Au,Cu do not give reaction with acids! ...read more.

  2. A Comparison of Strong and Weak Acids and Bases

    Data Collection Theoretical pH values for H2SO4(aq), HCl(aq), HNO3(aq), and NaOH(aq). Example Calculations (Strong acid): * 0.01M HCl(aq) was taken as an example calculation Chemical Equation: Necessary Formula: As seen from the equation above, the acid (HCl(aq)) dissociated fully as it is a strong acid. Thus, the concentration of HCl(aq)

    ethanoic acid | 3.4 - 4.35 | x 100 = 27.9% error 3.4 0.05 x 100 = 1.15 % uncertainty 4.35 0.1M Sodium Hydroxide | 13- 13.76 | x 100 = 5.8 % error 13.0 0.05 x 100 = 0.36 % uncertainty 13.76 0.01M Sodium Hydroxide | 12.0 - 11.63|

  2. Analysing the behaviour of acids.

    It occurs according to the formula: acid + base � salt + water During this process hydrogen ions (H+) from the proton donor and hydroxide ions (OH-) from the proton acceptor react together forming a water molecule (H2O). Neutralisation reactions are mostly classified as exothermic, as the heat is released to the surrounding.

  1. Paper Chromatography on Amino Acids IA

    The separation of the mixture of amino acids relies on the partition of the components between the water in the chromatography paper and the solvent moving over the paper. In this experiment, the purplish colour spots on the chromatogram indicate the presence of amino acids within the mixture.

  2. Reactivity of Metals with Water and Acid

    Part B: Reactivity of Metals in Hydrochloric Acid The materials were selected and brought to the station. Safety protocol was followed and safety glasses were worn throughout the experiment. The appropriate data tables were drawn in which to record the data observations.
