Zn powder

  1. Having talked my HoD out of Zn powder experiment (now using Zn granules doused in CuSO4), I now have 2x small amounts of Zn powder that has been out in a beaker ready for the practical overnight.. I am probably answering my own question, but rather than put a possibly damp powder back in the stockpot, I presume better to use acid to get rid... If so, how much acid?
    2x 20ml beakers up to the 15ml mark...
     
  2. Panic over.. should have read all the CLEAPSS... now will make informed decision and dispose as they wish. Serves me right for talking him out of the practical!
