I want to know if someone could let me know if I have written my balanced equations correct for the following questions.
Write a balanced equation for the reaction of zinc with sulfuric acid.
Zn + H2SO4 >>> Zn(S04) +H2

Write a balanced equation for the reaction of magnesium with hydrochloric acid.
Mg+@hCl >>> MgCl2 + H2

If I made a mistake could you explain it to me. Thanks

  • chemistry -

    The first one is right but you don't need parentheses around (SO4). ZnSO4 is sufficient.
    The second one is right if you intended @ to be 2 for HCl. And the h of HCl should be capitalized.
