Metals above hydrogen in the reactivity series react with dilute hydrochloric acid or dilute sulphuric acid to give metal chloride + hydrogen.

1)Is it correct to say that we use dilute acid,not concentrated acid because the reaction can take place with dilute acid & will be too vigorous if we use concentrated acid?

2)Why don't metals react with dilute nitric acid in the same way?
