Magnesium in Acid and Base Media
This model illustrates the process of interaction between active metals and strong acids and bases. Put any two reagents from the test tubes into the large flask. To do that, drag the appropriate test tube towards the flask, and drop it when it supersedes the flask. Before you start any further testing, make sure to empty the flask by dragging it to the waste tank.

Note that the active metal that is located to the left of hydrogen in the electrochemical tension series (take magnesium, for example) interacts with acids, however, no interaction with the bases occurs. Check the solution's acidity by adding litmus. Red and blue colors indicate the presence of acids and bases, respectively.
