Aluminum is a poor metal and hydrochloric acid is an acid. The chemical formulas for aluminum and hydrochloric acid are Al and HCl respectively. Aluminum reacts with hydrochloric acid to form aluminum chloride. Hydrogen gas is also formed during this reaction. The balanced equation for the reaction is;

2Al(s) + 6HCl(aq) ------ > 2AlCl3(aq) + 3H2(g)

Two moles of aluminum metal are reacted with six moles of hydrochloric acid to form two moles of aluminum chloride and three moles of hydrogen gas.
