Reaction of granulated zinc with dil HCl results in formation of_________

Answer:

The reaction of granulated zinc with dil HCl results in the formation of dihydrogen.

The reaction between zinc metal and dil HCl

The reaction between zinc metal and HCl
Zn + HCl → H2 + ZnCl

Zinc granules are the solid crystals of zinc, it reacts easily with the acid to produce hydrogen bubbles.

  • It is a single replacement reaction in which hydrogen is displaced by zinc metal to form hydrogen gas and a salt, zinc chloride.
  • Zinc chloride is formed when Zn is combined with dilute sulphuric acid and hydrogen gas is liberated.
  • The reaction is exothermic, and thus the reaction generates heat.
