Best Answer

Acid base reaction will occur

when zinc oxide is added to nitric acid water and zinc nitrate (salt) are formed

the equation is:

ZnO + 2 HNO3 = Zn(NO3)2 +H2O

nothing, zinc is less reactive than NaOH

actually it forms the complex ion Zn(OH)4 with a charge of 2- and H2 gas.

Na+ ion remains unchanged.

HNO3 gets reduced to nitrogen oxide while oxidizing H2 to H2O.

I'm pretty sure it reacts to form zinc nitrate + hydrogen, but don't take my word for it.

Zn + 2HNO3 --> Zn(NO3)2 + H2

A salt, zinc nitrate, is produced and also hydrogen gas is a product here.
