When you use hydrogen gas the water rises in the measuring tube why?

Hydrogen gas (H2) is not very soluble in water, and so it will displace the water in the container, thus making the level rise.


Does liquid water rise higher in a narrow tube or a wide tube?

Rise or fall of liquid in a small passage or tube. When a glass tube of small internal diameter is inserted into water, the surface water molecules are attracted to the glass and the water level in the tube rises. The narrower the tube, the higher the water rises. The water is said to "wet" the tube. Water will also be drawn into the fibres of a towel, even if the towel is in a horizontal position. Conversely, if a glass tube is inserted into mercury, the level of the liquid in the tube falls. The mercury does not wet the tube. Capillarity is caused by the difference in attraction of the liquid molecules to each other and the attraction of the liquid molecules to those of the tube.

How do you do you test for hydrogen?

Put magnesium and hydrochloric acid in a test tube.When you see fizzing in the test tube this means there is a chemical reaction!Light a splint and hold it in the test tube.If hydrogen is there the splint will make a squeaky pop! and if you put the gas in lime water it will turn milky white
