In a lab expirement you add copper(II)nitrate to pure zinc. Write a balanced equation for this expirement and predict if a reaction will occur.

I THINK Bob Pursley answered this question a day or so ago. Zinc is higher in the activity series than copper; therefore, Zn will replace copper ion. Zn goes into solution as Zn(II) and copper(II) comes out of solution to form Cu metal. Repost if there is something about this you don't understand.

I know that a reaction will occur but can you tel me if this balanced equation is correct:
Cu^2N+Zn--->Zn^2+Cu
I'm horrible at chem equations!



Can someone please tell me if this is the correct balanced equation for this problem?!


You wrote a correct balanced IONIC equation. You have to add the nitrate to have a complete equation.
