Caption: Magnesium-acid reaction. Magnesium reacting with an acid in a test tube. This is an example of a metal-acid reaction. The reaction proceeds vigorously due to the high reactivity of the magnesium, producing large amounts of heat and some vapour and steam (top). The products of the reaction are a magnesium salt (depending on the specific acid used) and hydrogen gas (bubbles at lower centre).
