For this investigation I am reacting magnesium ribbon Mg with Hydrochloric acid HCl I am measuring the rate of reaction between the two, and to do this am measuring the hydrogen given off by the reaction. Magnesium is a shiny silver coloured metal, an element with an atomic number of 12, which belongs to the group 2 alkali metal group; it therefore has only two orbiting electrons and is very unstable and reactive. Hydrochloric acid is a solution of hydrogen and chloride a colourless acidic gas in water, Hydrochloric Acid has a high acidity and therefore will react...
tests with the gas syringe, if I would have been able to continue this experiment further I could have produced more average results and seen if my predictions for the 1 cm piece of magnesium was correct.

We could have also varied the concentration of the acid more so, and used less or more acid to get more accurate results or results for different test situations, instead of changing the strength we could have changed the amount of acid, or the temperature of the acid, or try varying these together and see how they effect each other.
