					  Reaction between copper and
             silver nitrate
copper + silver nitrate → copper(II) nitrate + silver

     Cu + 2AgNO3 → Cu(NO3)2 + 2Ag
Identify the particles represented on the
handout. Annotate the diagrams to explain
what is happening.
                                    Before
                                     For simplicity the water particles (molecules) are not shown


 Silver particles moving in the
          silver nitrate solution



Nitrate particles moving in the
          silver nitrate solution




     Copper particles (atoms)
              in solid copper
                                          After
                                          For simplicity the water particles (molecules) are not shown


          Some copper particles have
      dissolved and are moving in the
solution (now copper nitrate solution)


  Nitrate particles have not changed
           and remain in the solution




  Silver particles (atoms) have been
    displaced from solution and now
         form a crystal of solid silver
