Nitric acid is a strong oxidizing agent and its molecule is unstable as compare to nitrogen oxides, on reacting with metals it gives hydrogen and oxygen both so water is produced instead of hydrogen.

This may due to Magnesium metal has high reactivity and concentration of nitric acid is dilute, thus magnesium reacts with H+ in water/ in nitric acid to give hydrogen

Dilute nitric acid is not used for the preparation of hydrogen as it is a strong oxidising agent and will produce hydrogen only when dilute nitric acid react with magnesium

Hydrogen react with metals and hydrides are formed.

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.

Sodium hydrogen carbonate and nitric acid react to form sodium nitrate, carbon dioxide, and water.

Nitric Acid cannot react with Gold alone. The only solution that can dissolve Gold is Aqua Regia; a combination of Nitric Acid and Hydrochloric Acid.

From the reaction between calcium and nitric acid result calcium nitrate and hydrogen.

when nitric acid and iron react together Iron Nitrate is formed and hydrogen gas

Acids often react with a metal to produce hydrogen gas.

A hydrogen gas is produced when a metal and water react.

The Calcium displaces hydrogen from the nitric acid, producing calcium nitrate and hydrogen gas. Ca + 2HNO3 --> Ca(NO3)2 + H2

Displacement reaction React Copper Nitrate with a more reactive metal such as Sodium or Calcium and you will get Sodium or Calcium Nitrate + Copper and Hydrogen x

what you can do is to have it react with hydrogen peroxide at low temperature. When these react you get nitric acid: 2NO2 + H2O2 -> 2HNO3

Palladium ia a less reactive metal; Pd react with fluorine, chlorine, nitric acid, etc.

Lead plus nitric acid equals lead nitrate and hydrogen gas. Lead react very slowly with a dilute acid such as nitric acid.

Acid + Metal = Salt + Hydrogen

Magnesium will react with nitric acid and most other acids to produce hydrogen gas.

Potassium will react with nitric acid to produce potassium nitrate and hydrogen gas. 2K + 2HNO3 --> 2KNO3 + H2

Nitric acid is an oxidising acid and copper will dissolve in concentrated nitric acid forming copper nitrate and liberating hydrogen gas.

Plutonium easily react with nitric acid.

Many metals react with acid to liberate hydrogen, and form metal ions. The metal is oxidised.

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.

A metal more active than hydrogen in the electromotive series will react with an acid to form hydrogen gas.

Because Nitric acid is an unstable molecule and a very strong oxidizing agent (as compare to its acidic nature) so it oxidizes the liberated hydrogen into water molecules.

Silver is not corroded in water; but silver can react with nitric acid or hydrogen sulfide.
