Aim:
To find the order and mechanism of the reaction between magnesium ribbon and acids, and see how it depends on the strong and weak acids at room temperature.

Please be more specific regarding what you have done... I don't understand what you are measuring in your graphs. Concentration against time? Concentration of what? Did you measure the rate of initial, steady state hydrogen evolution vs. acid concentration for identically shaped pieces of magnesium ribbon?
