PowerPoint - Activity Series _amp; Double Displacement Reactions by dffhrtcv3


									The Activity Series
We have looked at several reactions:                K
    Fe + CuSO4  Cu + Fe2(SO4)3                     Na
    Li + H2O  LiOH + H2           No, Ni is        Ca
                                 Yes, Li Na
The activity series ranks the relative is
                                   below            Mg
reactivity of metals.            above Zn           Al
It allows us to predict if certain chemicals will   Zn
undergo single displacement Yes, Al is
                                 reactions.         Fe
Metals near the top are most above Cu
                                 reactive and       Ni
will displace metals near the bottom.               Sn
Q: Which of these will react? Yes, Fe is            H
    Fe    + CuSO4  Cu + Fe2(SO4)3  above Cu        Cu
    Ni    + NaCl     NR (no reaction)              Hg
    Li    + ZnCO3  Zn + Li CO                      Ag
    Al    + CuCl2                 2   3
                        Cu + AlCl3                  Au
H2 can be given off when a metal cold          Na
reacts with H2O or an acid.       H2O          Li
The reaction with H2O depends on               Ca
metal reactivity & water temp. hot H2O         Al
Q: Will Mg react with H2O?                     Zn
                                       steam   Fe
A: No for cold, yes if it is hot/steam
Mg +       H2O            H2 + Mg(OH)2        Ni
                                        acid   Sn
Q: Zn + HCl  H2 + ZnCl2                       Pb
 Complete these reactions:                     H
 Al   +     H2O(steam)       H2 + Al(OH)3     Cu
 Cu   +     H2O       NR
 Ca   +     H2SO4 
                          H2 + CaSO4
 Na   +     H2O                               Ag
                          H2 + NaOH
    Other Activity Series Information
• All metals have a specific place in the activity
  series. Only the most common metals are
• The metals near the top of the activity series
  are more reactive because their valence
  electrons are more easily removed.
• On tests and exams the activity series may
  appear as K, Na, … Ag, Au; you must
  remember that K is reactive, Au is not.
• If the valence of a metal is not indicated, use
  its most common valence to determine the
  correct chemical formula.

        Fe + H2O HgO  Hg + O2             Au
         Sample Problem 8-6
• Use the activity series on page 266 (Table
• Zn(s) + H2O(l) 
  Zn(s) + H2O(l)  NR
• Sn(s) + O2(g) 
  Sn(s) + O2(g)  SnO
  – Balance!
• Cd(s) + Pb(NO3)2 
  Cd(s) + Pb(NO3)2  Cd(NO3)2 + Pb(s)
• Cu(s) + HCl(aq) 
  Cu(s) + HCl(aq)  NR
