Use the activity series of metals to write a balanced chemical equation for each single-replacement reaction.

Zn(s) + AgNO3 (aq) -->

NOTE: The three above is a subscript...it should be a small 3.

Please explain how to figure out this problem, and provide a thorough explanation on how I have to consider the activity series of metals.

  • chemistry -

    A displacement will only take place if the free metal is higher on the activity series than in the bond.

    Since Zn is higher on the activity series than Ag a reaction takes place and it becomes ZnNO3 + Ag
