when a zinc strip is placed in a copper nitrate solution, the strip becomes coated with copper. write down the oxidation half-reaction for the reaction that takes place.

  • chemistry -

    Zn ==> Zn^+2 + 2e

  • chemistry -

    cathode: Cu^2+ + 2e = Cu
    anode: Zn - 2e = Zn^2+
    Zn + Cu(NO3)2 = Zn(NO3)2 + Cu

  • chemistry -

    Zn-zn'2+2e
