Solution: Predict the products for the following combination of reactants: Al3+(aq) + Pb(s)A. Al(s) and Pb(s)B. Al(s) and Pb2+(s)C. Al3+(aq) and Pb4+(aq)D. Al3+(aq) and Pb2+(aq)E. no reaction occurs

Problem

Predict the products for the following combination of reactants: Al3+(aq) + Pb(s)

A. Al(s) and Pb(s)

B. Al(s) and Pb2+(s)

C. Al3+(aq) and Pb4+(aq)

D. Al3+(aq) and Pb2+(aq)

E. no reaction occurs

Solution

Use the concept of activity series to determine the outcome of the reaction: Al3+(aq) + Pb(s) 

Recall that the activity series gives us the relative reactivities of metals to oxidationmetals higher in the activity series are more reactive to oxidation and vice-versa.
