| **How many liters of hydrogen measured under normal conditions can be obtained by the action of 13 g of zinc on hydrochloric acid?**

The reaction of zinc with sulfuric acid is described by the following formula:

Zn + 2HCl = ZnCl2 + H2

That is, the molar amounts of zinc used and hydrogen produced are equal.

Let’s calculate the molar amount of zinc.

The molar mass of zinc is 65 grams / mol.

13 grams of zinc is 13 grams / 65 grams / mol = 0.2 mol of the substance.

The same number of moles of hydrogen will be obtained

1 mole of ideal gas under normal conditions takes a volume equal to 22.4 liters

0.2 mol of hydrogen will take up a volume of 22.4 liters / mol * 0.2 mol = 4.48 liters.
