Consider the reaction represented by the following equation:

Zn(s) + 2HCI(aq) → ZnCI2(aq) + H2(g)

What volume of hydrogen gas is produced at s.t.p. when 3.25 g of zinc reacts with excess dilute HCI? [Zn = 65, Molar gas volume at s.t.p. = 22.4 dm-³]

A. 1.12 dm³
B. 2.24 dm³
C. 4.48 dm³
D. 8.96 dm³

Correct Answer: Option A

A. 1.12 dm3
