When metal X is treated with a dilute acid Y, then a gas Z is evolved which bums readily by making a little explosion. (a) Name any two metals which can behave like metal X.
(b) Name any two acids which can behave like acid Y.
(c) Name the gas Z.
(d) Is the gas Z lighter than or heavier than air?
(e) Is the reaction between metal X and dilute acid Y exothermic or endothermic?
(f) By taking a specific example of metal X and dilute acid Y, write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction which takes place. Also indicate physical states of all the reactants and products.

Answer :

(a) Zinc and Iron behaves like metal X.

(b) HCL and H2SO4 behaves like Y.

(c) The gas is Hydrogen.

(d) Gas Z is lighter than air.

(e) The reaction is Exothermic.

(f) Take X as Zinc(Zn) and acid Y as Dil. Hydrochloric acid(HCl).

Zn (s) + 2HCl (aq.) ZnCl2 (aq.) + H2 (g)
