House key dropped in concentrated Hydrochloric Acid

At a guess, I’d say that this is a brass key which has been plated in nickel. 

If the key was coated in nickel the equation for this chemical reaction would be this:

2 Ni + 6 HCl = 3 H2 + 2 NiCl3

with the gas being given off in lots of bubbles likely to be hydrogen.

This is another info graphic I did advocating for snakes. When spring comes around snakes start to come out of hibernation and sometimes will end up in people’s backyards. Snakes around this time are killed left and right, whether it is completely harmless or venomous. I want to urge people to learn about snakes and also to leave snakes alone!

Short-beaked Echidna, Tachyglossus aculeatus.
Australia’s most widespread native mammal, the echidna is a monotreme, an egg-layer. It is found in an amazingly wide variety of habitats, from above the snow line to deserts, anywhere there are ants or termites for food.
This individual photographed outside Omeo, Victoria.
