im going to post a meaningful post today!
Today i'm going to talk about displacement reactions- metal displacement reactions.
So, what are displacement reactions you might ask? They are reactions that replace a weak reactive metal to a stronger reactive metal.
Ex. If you put magnesium into a 10 cm3 copper sulfate solution, sooner or later you will start seeing the copper slowly beginning to substitute the magnesium. Mg + CuSO4 → MgSO4 + Cu
In more simpler words, the copper will substitute into the magnesium and the magnesium will go into the sulphate solution, making a colourless magnesium sulfate solution.
Although, no reaction is seen if you do things the other way round – in other words, if you put copper powder into magnesium sulfate solution. This is because copper is not reactive enough to displace magnesium from magnesium sulfate.
This is a diagramof the reactivity of metals: (excluding carbon)
it's not shitpost if it's helpful
i thought i already have enough schoolwork to do
god dammit whule
too bad I'm not taking science this year
If you just copy it from another forum its a bad post.
@Pyrotechnic I wrote the dialogue myself but the diagrams i had to get from websites
