Hydrogen gas is liberated when metals react with acid.

The explanation lies in the fact that the the presence of hydrogen in a substance makes it acidic. so, every acid will contain Hydrogen. When metals reach with an acid, they form their respective salts according to the acid and always liberate hydrogen from that acid. If the acid is H2SO4, then the salt will sulfate of whichever metal reacts with the acid. If the acid is HCl, then the product would be metal chloride.

There are various types of steel that are being produced. One type of steel is carbon steel which is mainly composed of carbon and iron.

The body can't synthesize all amino acids. The amino acids in which the human body can synthesize on its own are known as nonessential amino acids. The most important key to being able to produce amino acids is having a diet rich in essential amino acids because the body will use other amino acids to produce new ones. The liver synthesizes nonessential amino acids and they can be produced in the cells.

The main acid is phosphoric acid and the fizz is produced by weak carbonic acid. There are no strong alkalies, but there are some alkaloids: the main one being caffeine.

Gold is much lower down in the reactivity series for metals, whereas magnesium is higher up and hence more reactive. Being more reactive, the chances are that the magnesium will have reacted and formed a compound such as magnesium oxide.

Reactive metals lose electrons when being oxidised.

Being a semi-metal means that they have simalarities of metals and non-metals. * boron * silicon * germanium * arsenic * antimony * selenium * tellurium

Yes, many metals can bend, even without being heated (eg. Copper). These are called malleable metals.

1) because they've already reacted with something else (oxygen or formed a salt). 2) being reactive they gave up a fair amount of energy (in 1). 3) you must now supply even more energy to extract it.

Malleability means capable of being shaped or formed. It is a physical property of matter, usually metals. Certain metals are more malleable than others.

Alkali metals being electropositive, lose electrons when they react.

Fats are first emulsified by bile from the liver. They are then broken down chemically by lipases which catalyse their conversion to fatty acids and glycerol. The bonds being broken are the same whether the fat originated in a plant or an animal, it is only the fatty acids produced which differ.

They are know as being malleable

Yes. aluminum will react with some acids. But after being exposed to air it forms an oxide layer that many acids can't penetrate.

Scientists had been producing hydrogen for years before it was recognized as an element. Written records indicate that Robert Boyle produced hydrogen gas as early as 1671 while experimenting with iron and acids. Hydrogen was first recognized as a distinct element by Henry Cavendish in 1766. The answers to when and who are probably lost in the mists of time anyway, but hydrogen was most likely discovered when early chemists/alchemists noted the gas being formed when metals were treated with acids. They'd have found that it burned in air to form water.

We can assume the copper wire has reacted completely with excess sulfur being burned off when there is no longer any traces of yellow color sulfur in the crucible.

A characteristic of metals is being very malleable and ductile. However, mercury is liquid at room temperature, and being liquid, it cannot be changed. There are probably a few exceptions to this, but most metals are malleable and ductile.
