(Solved) When I reacted Al foil and Al Sheet with both acetic acid and HCl


When I reacted Al foil and Al Sheet with both acetic acid and HCl I got the following results:

Al Sheet: only reacted vigorously  with HCl and gave off a rotten egg smell.

Al Foil: didn't react with either but floated in acetic acid.


I waited for not more than 10 minutes before i threw the contents away.


Can you explain why Al Sheet reacted with the strong acid when Al foil didn't? and aren't they both Aluminum oxide during their reactions with the acids?
