Whenever a metal reacts with acid then as a result of the chemical reaction, salt and hydrogen gas is produced. For example, the chemical reaction of calcium and nitric acid is as follows:

2Ca + 2HNO3 ----> 2CaNO3 + H2

In this reaction, Ca is the metal and HNO3 is the nitric acid whereas the products include Calcium nitrate salt an Hydrogen gas.
