Caption: Metals in acid. Four test tubes containing different metals in hydrochloric acid, showing their relative reactivity. Metals react in acids to form a metal salt and hydrogen gas (bubbles). From left to right: calcium - bubbling wildly, magnesium - bubbling rapidly, zinc - bubbling slowly and copper - not bubbling. Calcium is the most reactive and therefore the reaction is the most vigorous. Copper is far less reactive and therefore does not react readily at room temperature.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
