Activity Series of Metals Lab

Name

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 copper chloride a
copper deposit formed on the bottom of the well in the well plate. Where does nickel fit
into your activity series?

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) + NiCl2 (aq) no reaction
Fe (s) + NiCl2 (aq) 2 Ni (s) + Fe Cl2 (aq)
E. For the second reaction above identify:
1) the oxidation number of Ni (s)
2) the oxidation number of Fe in the FeCl2 (aq)
3) the oxidation number of Cl in the FeCl2 (aq)
4) the oxidation number of Fe (s)
5) the oxidation number of Ni in the NiCl2 (aq)
6) the oxidation number of Cl in the NiCl2 (aq)
7) the element that is oxidized and the element that is reduced
8) the oxidizing agent and the reducing agent
