Metal reacts with acid to form a salt and hydrogen.

e.g - Sodium + Hydrochloric Acid forms Sodium Chloride + Hydrogen

Metal + Acid = Salt + Hydrogen Any metal that reacts with hydrochloric acid will form a metal chloride salt and hydrogen Sodium metal and hydrochloric acid

When an acid reacts with a metal it produces a salt and hydrogen gas.

Hydrogen. Typically, when a metal reacts with an acid, hydrogen is displaced, the metal binds with the anion portion of the acid to form a salt, and molecular hydrogen is formed from the displaced hydrogen, evolving from the solution.

When an acid reacts with a metal, we get a salt and hydrogen.

When any metal reacts with a salt it forms hydrogen gas and a metal salt. For example - Zn +H2SO4 -----> ZnSO4 +H2

metal+ acid = salt + hydrogen thus, zinc(metal) reacts with sulphuric acid(acid) to form zinc sulphate(salt) and hydrogen gas, which occurs with a fizzing.

The usual test is to add it to an acid and see if it reacts to form hydrogen (which can be tested with the squeaky pop test) and a salt.

The resultant substances are a salt and gaseous hydrogen.

Acid + Reactive Metal --> Salt + Hydrogen Gas

Ca + H2SO4 yields CaSO4 + H2 When a metal reacts with an acid, hydrogen gas and a salt is formed. In this reaction, Calcium sulfate (a salt) and hydrogen gas (H2) is formed.

A salt and hydrogen gas is produced. Effervesence can be observed.

Mg + 2HCl → MgCl₂+ H₂ When a metal reacts with an acid a salt and hydrogen are produced.

Abilities. Acids have a sour taste. Reacts with metal to form hydrogen and a salt, depending on with metal that was used. Reacts with a base forming water and a salt (NaCl). Leads electricity. Metals are shiny and leads both electricity and temperature.

hydrogen gas is liberated when an acid reacts with a metal.The equation is as follows acid + metal=salt + h2

A strong acid like nitric (HNO3), hydrochloric (HCL), sulfuric (H2SO4) to name a few.

Yes it does. It is a reactive metal and displaces hydrogen from the acids to give a zinc salt and hydrogen gas.

When a base reacts with a metal, then a metal salt and hydrogen gas are formed. Base + Metal ----> Salt + Hydrogen. For example :- 2NaOH (aq) + Zn (s) ------> Na2ZnO2 (ag) + H2 (g)

Metal in broad sense can be defined as ... which reacts with acid to form salt and water.

acid +metal ->salt+ hydrogen eg sulphuric acid + magnesium -> magnesium sulphate+ hydrogen

metals reacts with dil.acid to form metal salt and hydrogen gas releases . eg - copper + dil. sulphuric acid = copper sulphate + hydrogen gas

It produces hydrogen gas and a salt. Metal+Hydrogen compound (eg. Acid) ----- Metal compound+Hydrogen gas Eg. 2Ag+2HCl ---- H2 (gas)+2AgCl

1. reacts with base to form salt and water (neutralisation) 2. reacts with carbonates to form salt water and carbon dioxide 3. reacts with metals liberating hydrogen gas
