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
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.
