Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by danny on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:24pm.

1) Arrange the metal-metal ion reactions (aluminum, copper, nickel), M^n+ + ne^- --> M^0, in a column, in order of decreasing ability as oxidizing agents...

What I put was :
Al^+3 + 3e^- --->Al
Ni^+2 + 2e^- --->Ni
Cu^+2 + 2e^- --->Cu

2) Also, explain your reasoning for the ordering shown above.

My reason was because the metal that reacts with both other metals belongs at the top while the metal that doesn't react with any of the two belongs at the bottom.

Is this correct?
