    1) Metal+Acid-->Salt+Hydrogen gas \[Zn _{(s)}+2HCl _{(aq)} \rightarrow ZnCl _{2(s)}+H _{2(g)}\] 2) Base reacts with metals and release hydrogen gas. REMEMBER NOT ALL METALS REACT WITH BASE.\[Zn+2NaOH \rightarrow Na _{2}ZnO _{2}+H _{2}\] 3)\[3H _{2}+W _{2}O _{3}\rightarrow 3H _{2}O+2W\] 4) \[CO+2H _{2}\rightarrow CH _{3}OH\] Regards, Read my Profile. :D
