1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Part one : A number of metals react with HCl to form salts of general formula MCl2. Write a balanced chemical equation for such a reaction. After a piece of one of these metals had reacted completely with the acid in 55.8 cm3 of 1.24M HCl, the resulting solution, which conducted electricity, was evaporated to dryness. The residue had a mass of 4.72g. Part Two: Part two: What is the atomic number and name of the metal? 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution So for part one I did : Mg+2HCL>MgCl2+H2 Then for part two is it the metal in my above balanced equation ? Simple yes or no answer Thanks!
