HOW METALS REACT WITH ACID AND WATER
A) How Metals react with Acids:
The reaction of metals with acids starts off by the hydrogen being displaced. Mostly in the reaction a Metal becomes a Cation when it looses one or more valence electrons to bond with the acid and so the Acid becomes an Anion. The Result is an ionic bond, ionic compound.
Sodium + Sulphuric Acid → Sodium Sulphate + Hydrogen
After the reaction occurs the result is the compound of the acid and metal used and the reaction would also release Hydrogen. We Might have to balance the equation because of the oxidation state and formulae of the Acid
After a Metal and Acid react and substance called salt is made that is an ionic compound made from the neutralisation of a Metal and an Acid
