This experiment enables students to explore Dalton's Law of Partial Pressure. They will react magnesium with a 6M solution of Hydrochloric Acid. Hydrogen gas is produced as it is collected over water. Quantitative analysis enables students to determine the number of moles of hydrogen produced and even to do a percent yield / theoretical yield calculation.
