Mar 10, 2017

$\text{Hydrated aluminum chloride and dihydrogen gas..........}$

#### Explanation:

And we can represent this by a stoichiometric equation:

$A l \left(s\right) + 3 H C l \left(a q\right) \rightarrow A {l}^{3 +} + 3 C {l}^{-} + \frac{3}{2} {H}_{2} \left(g\right) \uparrow$

else,

$2 A l \left(s\right) + 6 H C l \left(a q\right) \rightarrow 2 A {l}^{3 +} + 6 C {l}^{-} + 3 {H}_{2} \left(g\right) \uparrow$
