Write word equations and then balanced equations for the reaction taking
place when –
(b) dilute hydrochloric acid reacts with magnesium ribbon.
Zinc, Magnesium, Aluminium and iron are metals.
Acid reacts with Metals to form Salt and Hydrogen Gas
Acid + Metals → Salt + Hydrogen Gas
(b) Dilute hydrochloric acid reacts with magnesium ribbon.
Magnesium + Hydrochloric acid → Magnesium Chloride + Hydrogen Gas
Mg(s) + 2HCl(aq) → MgCl 2 (s) + H 2 (g)
