Zinc Lid

Really need some Chem Lab Help???

I do at home Chem labs and my experiment is NOT working after doing it three times. I have to include these observations in my lab report, but cannot do so if it is not working properly.

When mossy zinc is placed in a testube with diluted HCI, a rubber stopper placed on the tube, then a wide neck pipet with water is connected to the rubber stopper lid, gas is supposed to displace, and it does NOT happen. So after that, I am supposed to light a match to the hydrogen filled pipet (squeezing some in to the flame) and record my observations? Well what WOULD happen? It is not happening. :(

It could be that the HCl is too dilute. Do you see bubbles as the zinc reacts? Also you could be losing the gas to a leake around the stopper or the the pipet. When you squeeze the hydrogen gas into a flame it should fire ball a little. This is a test for Hydrogen gas. You might try to increase the strength of the HCL or switch to magnesium. You might try to sand a few pieces of the zinc if they are powdery looking.
