2 Ml of Sodium Hydroxide Solution is Added to a Few Pieces of Granulated Zinc Metal Taken in a Test Tube. When the Contents Are Warmed, a Gas Evolves - Science

2 mL of sodium hydroxide solution is added to a few pieces of granulated zinc metal taken in a test tube. When the contents are warmed, a gas evolves which is bubbled through a soap solution before testing. Write the equation of the chemical reaction involved and the test to detect the gas. Name the gas which will be evolved when the same metal reacts with dilute solution of a strong acid.

Solution

Test for hydrogen:   A splint is lit and held near the opening of the tube, then the stopper is removed to expose the splint to the gas. If the gas is flammable, the mixture ignites. This test is most commonly used to identify hydrogen, which ignites with a distinctive 'squeaky pop' sound

Zn + H2SO4 (dil) ZnSO4 + H2

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
