Nov 17, 2015

$Z n \left(s\right) + 2 H C l \left(a q\right) \rightarrow Z n C {l}_{2} \left(a q\right) + 2 {H}_{2} \left(g\right)$

#### Explanation:

Zinc will react with 2 equiv hydrochloric acid, according to the given stoichiometric equation. How many moles of metal do you have? Can you convert twice that molar quantity to a given volume of hydrochloric acid?
