Predicting whether simple electrochemical reactions happen The only chemical reaction possible in either situation is a single displacement reaction, in which metal atoms from the strip displace metal cations from the ionic compound in solution. 1. Write out the single displacement reactions for each reaction Both of the reactions are redox reactions

Unformatted text preview: . 1. Write the net ionic equation for each reaction (drop the spectator ions) The two ionic reactions should be the exact reverse of each other 1. Decide whether the reaction will happen by finding the two metals in the metal activity series (under Data) . The metal that lies higher in the activity series can reduce the other...
