Hydrogen, H2(g), is above silver metal in the activity series of the metals. WIll the follwing reaction, Ag(s) + H+(aq) -> occur or not occur? why or why not?

    It will not.
    A metal will displace any ion BELOW it in the activity series. Ag is BELOW H^+; therefore, it will not displace H^+

    Thank you! I wasn't sure where H^+ was on the activity series

    It's easy enough to find on google.
