Our blog ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­In our experiment we tested to see which out of the 5 metals we chose (magnesium, copper, aluminum, iron, and zinc) will corrode the most in a time span of 20 minutes. We started the experiment off by weighing the metals and acid until we had exactly 50ml of hydrochloric and 5 grams of each metal. However, we then thought that 5 grams was too much, so we reduced the weight to 1 gram for each metal but on the other hand we kept the amount of acid at 50mls. If we were to redo this experiment then we would also reduce the amount of acid to 25mls since we…

Metals in Hydrochloric Acid Experiment – Elavi, Jake, Yonny – Y7

What happens when you put metals into hydrochloric acid?   The objective of our experiment is to see what would happen to different metals if mixed with hydrochloric acid over the time span of 20 minutes. Our variables were the following metals: copper, zinc, magnesium, iron and aluminium. We also used beakers, scales and test tubes to let the chemical reaction take place in. After this experiment, we found out that magnesium was the most reactive when mixed with hydrochloric acid. On the other hand, zinc, iron and copper had almost no effects on the acid. To conclude, we found out that some metals are more reactive than others and that you don't…
