Can sulfuric acid melt metal?



  1. 0 Votes

    Sulfuric acid reacts with most metals to create hydrogen gas, while breaking down the metal. The acid doesn’t exactly melt metal, but it breaks down the chemical bonds the metal possesses in a reaction that removes hydrogen ions from the sulfuric acid solution.

    As stated above, sulfuric acid doesn’t melt metal, it dissolves it. Melting keeps the chemical structure of the metal intact while altering the physical structure, while acid alters the chemical structure.
