Reactions of acids



Acids react with metals that are high up in the reactivity series. In this video, we look at how metals such as magnesium, zinc and iron react with hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid. You will learn how to name and write the formulae for the salts formed and practice writing word and symbol equations for these reactions.
