Hi, I'm Robin Higgins and this is what is the chemical equation for reacting aluminum with excess sulfuric acid over water. OK. So let's take a look at all of our agents. Well we have aluminum and that's just a metal, it's a solid and we also have sulfuric acid. That chemical formula s H2SO4 and so this is all reacting right now so we can draw a reaction arrow. And when sulfuric acid reacts with a metal, they tend to form metal sulfates. And so we're going to form here is actually aluminum sulfate. And that's the chemical formula of that. And you also form hydrogen gas during this process. So we can see that we have our hydrogen gas separated on its own and our sulfate portion is now bonded to that metal. So I already balanced the hydrogen gas. Let's balance the rest of it. Well, we have two aluminums here so we're going to have to add two here. And then we have three sulfates here and so we're going to have to add three here and we can see our hydrogen gas is already balanced. So this is a gas, this is aqueous, and this is also aqueous. I'm Robin Higgins and this is what is the balanced equation for reacting aluminum with sulfuric acid over water.
