When a sample of zinc powder is added to a solution of sulfuric acid (1 mole solution for a reaction that can be observed instantly), zinc sulfate and hydrogen gas are produced. Immediately, hydrogen can be observed effervescing from the solution. The chemical equation for this reaction is as follows:
H2SO4(aq) + Zn(s) = ZnSO4(aq) + H2(g)
(aq) = aqueous

Observation of zinc in sulfuric acid?

Zinc has a negative reduction potential (E o = -0.76V) so it is favorable for zinc to be oxidized (the opposite of being reduced) under standard conditions:. Zn --> Zn 2+

Reactants of sulfur and zinc reaction?
