Purpose and HypothesisPurpose: What is the order of reactivity of the metals copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc insingle displacement reactions?
Chemicals/ EquipmentWell plate/Spot plateSmall pieces of magnesium, iron, zinc and copper metalDilute solutions of hydrochloric acid, copper (II) sulfateWash bottle with distilled water
Procedure1.Record the appearance of each metal.2.Using the well plate, combine each type of metal with each solution and with water. Putenough drops of the appropriate solution to completely cover the piece of metal.3.Record any changes in appearance due to a chemical reaction. In reactions of metal withacid, look carefully for the formation of bubbles. Look for color changes on the surface ofthe shiny part of the metal or in the solution. Remember that some reactions are slow
