    1) Arrange the metal-metal ion reactions (aluminum, copper, nickel), M^n+ + ne^- --> M^0, in a column, in order of decreasing ability as oxidizing agents... What I put was : Al^+3 + 3e^- --->Al Ni^+2 + 2e^- --->Ni Cu^+2 + 2e^-

    Would you store a solution of zinc nitrate in an aluminum container? Use half-reactions to explain your answer. Al ==> Al^+3 + 3e Zn ==> Zn^+2 + 2e Look up the above half reactions and you will see that the Al will go into
