# Represent the Addition of Dilute Sulphuric Acid to Zinc by Means of a Chemical Equation. State the Function of the Arrow Between the Reactants and Products. - Chemistry

Short Note

Represent the addition of dilute sulphuric acid to zinc by means of a chemical equation. State the function of the arrow between the reactants and products.

#### Solution

• Reactants

Left hand side write the reactants (substances which take part in a reaction).

• Products

Right hand side write the products (substances formed as a result of the reaction).

Chemical equation formed is

$\ce{\underset{\text{[dil.]}}{Zn} + H2SO4 -> ZnSO4 + H2[g]}$

The function of the arrow (→) between the reactants and products is that it represents the chemical reaction taken place between two reactants.
