Lab Report Assistant: This document is not meant to be a substitute for a formal laboratory report. It is simply a summary of the experiment’s questions and data tables which should be addressed in a formal lab report. The intent is to facilitate student’s writing of lab reports by providing this information in an .rtf format which can be copied and pasted into an electronic document. Oxidation-Reduction / Activity Series Questions A. Based on your observations make an activity series of the metals used. List them in such a way that the most active metal is on the left and the least active metal is on the right. Remember, sodium and copper are metals, too. B. Suppose you inserted a piece of copper into a solution of nickel chloride and observed no reaction. Then if you inserted a piece of iron into the solution of nickel chloride a copper deposit formed on the bottom of the well in the well plate. Where does nickel fit into your activity series?

Unformatted text preview: C. Suppose you inserted a piece of an unknown metal into a solution of zinc (II) nitrate and observed no reaction. Then if you inserted the unknown piece of the metal into the solution of iron (III) chloride a deposit formed on the bottom of the well in the well plate. Where does the unknown metal fit into your activity series? D. The chemical reactions for the preceding question number 2 are: Cu (s) + NiCl 2 (aq) no reaction Fe (s) + NiCl 2 (aq) 2 Ni (s) + Fe Cl 2 (aq) E. For the second reaction above identify: 1) the oxidation number of Ni (s) = 2) the oxidation number of Fe in the FeCl 2 (aq) = 3) the oxidation number of Cl in the FeCl 2 (aq) = 4) the oxidation number of Fe (s) = 5) the oxidation number of Ni in the NiCl 2 (aq) = 6) the oxidation number of Cl in the NiCl 2 (aq) = 7) the element that is reduced = the element that is oxidized = 8) the reducing agent = the oxidizing agent =...
