Using case study 6.1 found on page 132-133 in your textbook as a guide; create hazardous chemical information for process safety analysis for the dangers of hydrochloric acid. You will need to use the internet to find information regarding standard chemicals.
Make sure to cite your sources at the end of your document. Use Word to create your analysis .
Here is a copy of that case study from the manual.
