When aluminum metal is dipped in an aqueous solution of hydrochloric acid, hydrogen gas is produced with the formation of an aluminum chloride solution. Write the balanced chemical equation showing the phase of reactants and products.

AlumInium is a solid, HCl = (aq) as is AlCl3 while H2 is a gas. If you need help with writing formula, there are tutorials on the site. Also there is help with writing equations



When aluminum, Al, metal is dipped in an aqueous solution of hydrochloric acid, HCl, hydrogen gas, H2, is produced with the formation of an aluminum chloride, AlCl3, solution. Write the balanced chemical equation showing the phases of reactants and products.


6 HCl (aq)   +  2  Al (s)   -->  2  AlCl3 (aq)     +  3  H2 (g0
