What does metal react with?

metals react with some acid

Why do some metals not react with acid?

Metals whose surfaces are "passivated" by for example the formation of an insoluble oxide do not react with acid. An example is aluminium which is resistant to dilute acid.

What can react with Acids?

Many acids will react with bases and, depending on the acid, some metals.

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.

Name some acids that react with metals?

Nitric acid reacts strongly with many metals.

What is Vinegar and metal reaction?

Vinegar (acetic acid) can react with some reactive metals as alkaline metals.

What happens to a metal when exposed to an acid after three days?

The answer depends on what the metal is. Some metals react readily with acid, and some do not.

Will all metals react with an acid?

No, there are many metals which do not react with acid. Metals from copper downwards in the reactivity series do not react with acids (though you can get a different sort of reaction with concentrated oxidising acids). In addition, reactions which produce an insoluble salt, such as lead and dilute sulfuric acid, react only sluggishly. Some metals have a coherent oxide coating which prevents reaction with dilute acids, e.g. aluminium, and others quickly develop such a coating in concentrated nitric acid.

Why do some metals react with acid?

Because they are able to dissolve and are more reactive than hydrogen

Do all metals react in the same way with acid?

No the dont some metals are resistant to acids while others are not. Also,some metals react easier than others. For example, magnesium reacts easier and better than zinc, iron or copper in hydrochloric acid solution.

What gas is given off when acid is added to a metal?

Hydrogen gas. (But this is not with all metals as some like gold do not react with acid)

Why do some metals react with steam but not with water?

Some metals react with steam but not water because of their lower reactivity. They need to be heated and will give hydrogen gas and metal oxides.

Do all metals react with acid to produce hydrogen gas?

No. Copper will not react with most acids. It will react with nitric acid to produce nitrogen dioxide. Gold and platinum will not react with nitric acid but will react with aqua regia, a mixture of hydrochloric and nitric acids to produce nitrogen dioxide and some nitric oxide. Rhenium does not react with acid at all.

Which metals do not react with acid to produce hydrogen?

all those metals which are present below Hydrogen in the reactivity series like Ag , Cu , Au , Pt ,etc. ^^ He is incorrect. All metals, one or another, will react with some acids to produce Hydrogen Gas. -He mentioned Copper and Silver. Silver and Copper will react with Nitric Acid giving off Hydrogen and NitroDioxide Gas. He mentioned Gold and Platinum. Gold and Platinum will react with Aqua Regia (A mixture of Hydrogen Chloride and Nitric Acid) giving off Nitric Oxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, and Hydrogen gas. All metals will react with FluoroAntimonic Acid, Xenic Acid, or any other super acid to give off hydrogen gas and other gases as well.

What metals react with acids true or false?

There is a fault with the question. Acids react with metal -TRUE What metals react - all will with the right acid - some need extremely strong acids -gold for example needs aqua regia

Name metals which do not react with oxygen?

Au and Pt are some metals which do not react with O.

When acids react with metals?

Home/Sitemap · you are here: Forum => letter 18515 Acid and metal reaction++Q. When an acid is added to a metal, what kind of reaction is produced?A. Some acids react with some metals and not all acids react with all metals. It all depends on what is reacting with what. However, assuming there is a reaction, the acid will dissolve the metal to produce the metal salt of that acid; at the same time it will produce hydrogen gas. ie 2H+ + M = 2M+ + H2

Do acids react with all metals to form hydrogen gas?

No. Some of the less reactive metals, such as platinum, gold, silver, copper, and rhenium will not undergo this reaction. Copper and silver will react with nitric acid to produce nitrogen dioxide (NO2), a toxic brown gas. Gold and platinum will react with aqua regia, a mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acid, in a similar manner. Rhenium will not react with any acid.

Do acids react with metals to form salts?

Some acids react with some metals to form salts, yes.

Do acids make hydrogen when they react with some metals?

When acids react with metals they can produce hydrogen.

What happens when metals react with bases?

Some metals react with bases and produce hydrogen gas

What is the affect of acid on different types of metals?

It really depends on the type of acid and the metal. Metals like gold and platinum (and others metals which are called the noble metals) are impervious to acids except for aqua regia which is a mixture of hydrochloric and nitric acids. Some metals like copper won't react with acids unless there is also an oxidizer present like hydrogen peroxide and then some metals like zinc will react with most acids readily.

Why does some metals react faster than others in Hydrochloric acid?

Some metals react faster than others in Hydrochloric acid because of their placement in the electrochemical series. The electrochemical series is an arrangement of various redox equilibria in order of their redox potential or standard electrode potential. Hydrogen is the base value at 0. The more negative the standard electrode potential of the metal, the faster it will react. It must be below hydrogen to react with hydrochloric acid.

What does not react with water?

There are some metals which do not react with water. Metals like Silver,Gold,Platinum,copper,Mercury and non metals like Hydrogen do not react with water.

Does Acids react with some metals to produce hydrogen gas.?

Acids react with most of the metals and form hydrogen. Few metals like Cu does not react this way.
