Some acids that react with metals are sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid and nitric acid. The most common metals that react with acids are iron, lead, magnesium and zinc. More »

While exploring what happens when metals come in contact with acids, it is apparent that most, but not all, have some sort of reaction, usually forming hydrogen gas. The result is the production of salts. More »

Metals to the left of hydrogen in the electrochemical series react with hydrochloric acid. These elements include lithium, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, aluminum, zinc, iron and lead. Metals to the right of hydr... More »

A list of strong acids includes hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrobromic acid, hydroiodic acid, chloric acid and perchloric acid. When added to a solution, a strong acid ionizes completely and loses one... More »

Copper reacts with nitric acid and sulfuric acid. It reacts with cold, dilute nitric acid, but it requires heat and concentrated sulfuric acid to create a reaction. Copper does not react with most other acids. More »
