I found a pattern and I was wondering if it applies to all reactions.
The more times there is evidence of a redox reaction occuring for an element, the higher this element will be on the list?
Generally, that is true. But of course, it all depends upon what you compare it with. For example, if we look at an element plus ALL the elements below it, then it reacts with all of them but if we compare it with ALL elements above it, it reacts with none of them. So I could pick and choose and give you five elements in which all, none, or any mix would react with the chosen element.
