They are sour to taste, some are corrosive. They react with active metals such Aluminum (Al), Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), however, they…

Chemical Equilibrium Explained Part 1

Reaction Dynamics When a reaction begins, the reactants are consumed and the products are created. Thus, the concentration of the reaction decreases as well as the forward rate of reaction also decreases. If the products are not allowed to escape (release from gas formation, etc.) then the products can react to re-form some of the…
