Homework Help: Chemistry Equation

Posted by chrissy on Saturday, January 6, 2007 at 1:23pm.

In a lab expirement you add copper(II)nitrate to pure zinc. Write a balanced equation for this expirement and predict if a reaction will occur.

I THINK Bob Pursley answered this question a day or so ago. Zinc is higher in the activity series than copper; therefore, Zn will replace copper ion. Zn goes into solution as Zn(II) and copper(II) comes out of solution to form Cu metal. Repost if there is something about this you don't understand.

I know that a reaction will occur but can you tel me if this balanced equation is correct:
Cu^2N+Zn--->Zn^2+Cu
I'm horrible at chem equations!

Cu^+2 + Zn ==> Cu + Zn^+2 is the ionic equation.
