What is the ionic equations for the following metals and aqueous substances? With the same equation what is being oxidize and what is being reduced?
Zn + AgNO3
Zn + CuSO4
Zn + PbNO3
Mg + AgNO3
Mg + CuSO4
Mg + PbNO3
Cu + AgNO3
Here is the first one. All of these are single replacement reactions.
Zn(s) + 2Ag^+(aq) ==> 2Ag(s) + Zn^+2(aq)
Oxidation is the loss of electrons; hence, Zn is oxidized. Ag ion is reduced.
