What are unreactive metals?

metals which dont react with water or acid are called unreactive metals


Doeds acid and metal react to give off oxygen?

When an acid reacts with a metal, it produces a salt and hydrogen gas, not oxygen. The hydrogen gas is evolved when the metal displaces hydrogen from the acid.


Do metals in group 1 react more with water than in acid?

yes


What metal reacts quickly with water and acid?

Metals that react well with water: Sodium - fizzes Potassium - burns Caesium - explodes Metals that react well with acids: Magnesium


Why don't carbonic acids react with metals?

Carbonic acid does react with metals as similar to the other acids. But in nature, carbonic acid molecule is unstable. It has an equilibrium where carbonic acid dissociates into a water molecule and a carbon dioxide molecule.


Do all metals react with hydrocholric acid?

no all metals do not react with hydrochloric acids


What metal reacts with acids?

Lots of metals react with acids. It depends on exactly what acid, and the concentration of that acid. A mixture of concentrated nitric acid and hydrochloric acid (aqua regia, royal water) will react with gold and other precious metals. The alkali metals will react readily with acid, as will most metals. You have to know that any metal with incomplete orbital has the ability to react with any proton donating species. (proton donating species are acids according to Bronston-Lowry theory)


Which metal and acid would react together to give off oxygen?

Most metals react with acids to give off hydrogen. Only very nonreactive metals, like gold and platinum do not react with metals. An example would be: Calcium + Hydrochloric Acid = Calcium chloride + Hydrogen gas (Ca +2 HCl = CaCl2 + H2)


What metals react with water and acid?

Many transition metals will react with acids to form a salt and hydrogen gas. For example, zinc will react with hydrochloric acid to form the black-colored solid zinc chloride and hydrogen. The formula is: Zn+2HCl-->ZnCl2+H2. The group 1 and 2 metals will often react with water, sometimes explosively. Sodium reacts with water to produce sodium hydroxide and hydrogen. The formula is: 2Na+2H2O-->2NaOH+H2. The reactivity series of metals (see wikipedia -Reactivity series) shows a list of the metals that react.


What two metals will react with dilute hydrochloric acid?

Two metals that will react with dilute hydrochloric acid are zinc and magnesium.


Do all metals react with acid then disappear?

No. First of all, the metal does not dissapear. When a a metal reacts with an acid it forms a corresponding salt, which usually then dissolves. Second, whther or not a reaction occurs depends on both the acid and the metal. Most metals will not react with a dilute weak acid. Some metals will not even react with most strong metals. Gold, platinum, and some platinum group metals will not react with acid except for aqua regia, a special mixture of hydrochloric and nitric acid. Ruthenium will not react with acid at all.


Do all metals react with hydrochloric acid to give hydrogen gas?

No, not all metals react with hydrochloric acid to produce hydrogen gas. Only metals higher in the reactivity series than hydrogen, such as zinc, iron, and magnesium, will react with hydrochloric acid to form hydrogen gas. Metals like gold, silver, and platinum do not react with hydrochloric acid.
