🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Ervin's class at UNR.

Solution: Using the activity series (Table 4.5), write balanced chemical equations for the following reactions. If no reaction occurs, simply write NR. (b) zinc metal is added to a solution of magnesium sulfate

Problem

Using the activity series (Table 4.5), write balanced chemical equations for the following reactions. If no reaction occurs, simply write NR. (b) zinc metal is added to a solution of magnesium sulfate

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the outcome of the given reaction:

Zn(s) + MgSO4(aq) 


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.
