I have to write the balanced equation for the reaction between hydrochloric acid and zinc metal.I came to the answer of:
HCl+Zn(s)-->H(g)+ ZnCl
Can someone tell me if this is the correct balanced equation for this reaction?

No it isn't but it's close.
The gas hydrogen occurs as diatomic molecules and zinc chloride has the formula ZnCl2.
Zn + 2HCl ==> H2 + Zn Cl2
