When an acid reacts with a metal such as zinc, whats released? Where does the product come from? I answered: a gas hydrogen is released and it comes from the bubbles formed when an acid is added to a metal' is the 2nd part of the q correct??
No. You're correct that H2 gas is released. The H ion is in the acid; the H ion is released as H atom, two atoms join to form H2 molecule and those bubbles are then released to the atmosphere.
gas hydrogen is released qand it comes from the bubbles as t forms when acid is added to a metal
