Science Journal#8 project#2

In our today’s lesson we conducted an experiment that was about different metals reacting with different acids. We were given 3 different acids-hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid and acetic and 4 other metals-magnesium, zinc, aluminium and iron.

 

We only managed to test all 4 different metals in the hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid and yet there wasn’t any reaction that we were hoping for. We hoped that it will make a popping sound but it didn’t, in fact magnesium and aluminium were the only two metals that had a reaction, they started forming bubbles as soon as the light up matchstick was held over the test tube. We did not get to finish the rest of the experiment and the class ran out of matches. So this was our first experiment which didn’t really work out…L
