Chemical properties or chemical reaction acid

Chemical properties of acid Or chemical reaction of acid:

  • Acid are sour in taste.
  • Acid are corrosive in nature.
  • Acid react metal to yield hydrogen gas.
  • Acid change the colour blue into red by litmus paper.
  • Acid react with base to loss their acidity and produce salt.
  • Acid produce H+ ion when acid mix with water.
  • Acid change the pink colour of phenolphthalein to colourless.
  • Acid can conduct electricity.
  • Some acid are highly corrosive in nature that is they corrode or rust metal.

Chemical reaction of acid

  • Reaction with Metal:

By the reaction of acid and metals ,  Salt and Dihydrogen gas are form.

  • Acid like dilute HCl and dilute H2SO4react with active metal like zinc ( Zn) , Iron (Fe)

Etc. To form salt and form hydrogen gas.

Metal + Dilute Acid —> Salt + Hydrogen gas

  • Acid React with metal Carbonate and Hydrogen carbonate :

i) When dilute Hydrochloric Acid react with sodium carbonate then sodium chloride, carbon dioxide and water are from.

Sodium carbonate + Dilute Hydrochloric Acid —>  Sodium chloride + Carbon dioxide + Water

ii) When dilute hydrochloric Acid react with sodium hydrogen carbonatethen sodium chloride, carbon dioxide and water are form.

  • Reaction with metal oxide:

Acid react with calcium  oxide react with hydrochloric Acid to form salt and water.

  • Test for carbon dioxide:

When Carbon dioxide gas is pass through lime water it turn milky due to the formation white precipitate of CaCO3.

  • Acid react with base (or Alkali) :

When acid react with base or alkali to form salt and water.

The reaction between an  acid and a  base to form salt and water are called Neutralization reaction.

Acid +  Base    —–>   Salt +  Water
