  • Acid + Metal = Salt + Hydrogen
    • The more reactive the metal the faster the reaction.
    • Metals less reactive than hydrogen (eg.Copper) do not react with acid.
    • To prove hydrogen is present we hold a burning flint over the reaction and if hydrogen is present it will make a loud squeak and go out.
    • Hydrochloric acid makes chloride salts.
    • Sulfuric acid makes sulfate salts.
    • Nitric Acid makes nitrate salts when neutraklised, but it makes nitrogen oxide when it reacts with metals.
