magnesium + hydrochloric acid -->magnesium chloride + hydrogen gas
iron wool + diluted nitric acid --> iron(iii) nitrate + nitrogen dioxide + water
iron wool + concentrated nitric acid --> iron(iii) nitrate + nitrogen monoxide + water
put a burning splint inside a gas cylinder which contains hydrogen gas
"pop" sound can be heard
pour the reactants inside a test tube/boiling tube
cork the tube with a cork which has a small hole at the centre
then connect the tube to a gas cylinder through water
this method is called upward delivery
as hydrogen gas is lighter than air and it is insoluble in water
PS: avoid naked flame or other explosive substances around the set up
