Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Joseph on Monday, April 14, 2008 at 4:47pm.

"Ag(s) reacts with none of the 4 (solutions of Ag^+2, Pb^+2, Cu^+2, Zn^+2}. So Ag(s) goes at the bottom of the table for now although there may be some metals below silver when you finish with the entire table.
Cu(s) reacts with (Ag^+ solution) so Cu goes above Ag ion. It is below the others, though, for it doesn't react with them. The reaction is Cu(s) + 2Ag^+ ==> Cu^+2 + 2Ag.
Likewise, Pb(s) replaces Ag^+ and Cu^+2 but not replacre Zn^+2. (We ignore the Pb/Pb^+2 for obvious reasons). So Pb goes above Ag but Zn goes above Pb. In the same way, Zn is above Ag^+, above Pb^+2, above Cu^+2, but we ignore reaction with Zn^+2. That is all of the information you can get from Reaction 2. But it shows you how it is done. Do the same thing for other reactions and build the entire table. I hope this helps you get started."

In other words,

the order would look like the following?

Zn
Cu
Pb
Ag
