I'm in a grade 11 Chemistry course and currently were covering single displacement reactions and the metal activity series.
I have the following question to do:
2. Answer the following questions based the activity series you just created. The word observed means what changes did you see (such as color changes, solid formation, etc.) Write the equations (molecular and net ionic) for all reactions that occur.
a. What will be observed when a piece of Cu metal is added to a MgSO4 solution?
b. What will be observed when a piece of Pb metal is added to a ZnSO4 solution?
c. What will be observed when a piece of Fe metal is added to a AgNO3 solution?
d. What will be observed when a piece of Ag metal is added to a Pb(NO3)2 solution?
e. What will be observed when a piece of Ca metal is added to a AgNO3 solution?
Now, I'm not sure how to know what will be observed, But I've wrote the equations, and I'm not sure if those are right either. Here are my answers:
a) Cu + MgSO4 --> CuSO4 + Mg
b) Pb + ZnSO4 --> PbSO + Zn
c) Fe + AgNO3 --> FeNO + Ag
d) Ag + Pb(NO3)2 --> Ag(NO3)2 + Pb
e) Ca + AgNO3 --> CaNO + Ag
**Should I always blanace my equations?
a) Copper Sulphate with magnesium on bottom.
b) Lead Sulphate with zinc on bottom.
c) Iron Nitrate with silver on bottom.
d) Silver Nitrate with with lead on bottom.
e) Calcium Nitrate with silver on bottom.
IF SOMEONE COULD HELP ME OUT/CORRECT MY MISTAKES I WOULD GREATLY LIKE THAT. THANKS TO ANYONE WHO CAN HELP.
