    I like how you turned iron into zinc, but your formulas are not correct

    where did you got that equation? something doesnt looks fine, you have Fe in one side and ZnCl in the other, or you have to add Fe in the other side and ZnCl in the reactants Fe + ZnCl +CH3COOH -> ZnCl + CH3COOH + Fe then balance the mass

    @Cuanchi the zinc is irrelevant, it's not found in white vinegar

    the iron will displace the \(H^{+1}\), forming iron (II) acetate and hydrogen gas, \(H_2\)
