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.

  1. Reactivity series for common metals experiment.

    Finally the least reactive Solid Metal will be Copper and Lead, reacting with none metal compounds. Balanced Formulas Results were not done as shown in the lab, but in theory, since those are the most accurate ones. The diagonal Xs were not included in the formulas since they obviously did not present a reaction.

  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. Reactivity of Metals with Water and Acid

    The physical properties of each of the metals were recorded. One at a time, each of the metals was carefully dropped into a different test tube of hydrochloric acid. Reactions were observed for a 20 minute period (amendment: because of the lack of time, reactions were only observed for five minutes)

    The Rf value of the three unknown spots can then be calculated after measuring the distance migrated by the amino acid samples and the solvent front. The values of the three unknown samples are then compared to the literature values provided.
