Hydrochloric acid (HCl) in a beaker. This liquid is volatile, as can be seen by the fumes rising from its surface. This is a common characteristic of all liquid non-metallic chlorides, not just of hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is a highly corrosive acid, and those using it must take care to avoid spilling it on their skin.
