What the single replacement reaction of fe plus C2H3O2?

A single replacement reaction will not occur. In a single replacement reaction, either a metal will replace another metal in a compound, or an anion will replace another anion in a compound. Click on the related link to see the Wikipedia article on single displacement (single replacement).


How can a table listing of metals in an activity series be useful for prending whether a chemical reaction will occur?

An activity series of metals can predict whether a replacement (displacement) reaction will occur. You use the activity series to compare the reactivity of different metals in order to predict whether a replacement reaction will occur. A metal that is above another metal in the series will replace that metal in a compound.


How can you predict if one metal will replace another metal in a single-replacement reaction?

Look up either their half-cell potentials or their electronegativity and the one with the higher value will become the ion.


What is the difference of a single replacement and double replacement reaction?

In a single-replacment reaction, atoms of an element replace atoms of another element in a compound. In a double-replacement reaction, two positive ions trade places between different ionic compounds.


What determines whether one metal will replace another metal from a compound in a single-replacement reaction?

The activity (or reactivity) series determines whether or not a metal will replace another one in a replacement reaction.See the Related Questions to the left for more information about the activity series.


How do you use the activity series of metals to predict the products of a single-replacement reaction?

If the solid metal is above the combined metal, it will replace it in a single replacement reaction. If it is below the combined metal, it will not. For example: A + BX ==> AX + B if A is above B in the activity series, but A + BX ==> No reaction if A is below B in the activity series.


Can potassium replace calcium in a single replacement reaction?

yes !


Can magnesium replace lithium in a single replacement reaction?

It is inverse.


Can nonmetals replace metals in a single replacement reaction?

no, nonmetals replace nonmetals and metals replace metals.


What is an example of a single replacement reaction?

A single replacement reaction is a reaction in which the atoms of one element replace the atoms of another element in a compound. The following chemical equation describes thisA+ BX ------> AX + Bor2Li (s) + 2H2O (l) -----> 2LiOH + H2 (g)


Reaction in which the atoms of one element replace the atoms of a cation in a compound?

Single Replacement Reaction.


In what kind of reaction does one element replace a similar element in a compound?

Single-replacement reaction


Is double replacement a chemical reaction?

Yes it is a chemical reaction, where 2 cations replace each other.


In what type of chemical reaction does one element replace another in a compound?

This is called a replacement reaction. When one element replaces another in a compound, it is called single replacement or single displacement. An example isZn + 2HCl ---> ZnCl2 + H2 where the zinc replaces the hydrogen in the acid to form zinc chloride.


How can you predict if a metal will replace another in a compound?

you really cant


Can calcium replace potassium in a single replacement reaction?

Although Calcium is lower on the activities series list I have seen calcium replace potassium in a reaction so the answer I think is YES


What element should fluorine replace in lithium bromide?

Fluorine will replace bromine to produce the compound lithium fluoride in a single replacement reaction.


Does silver and calcium nitrate have a reaction?

Since calcium is more reactive than silver, silver cannot replace calcium in this single-replacement reaction.


Can copper sulphate replace cobalt chloride in replacement reaction?

no because cobal is more reactive than copper


Do Chemical reactions always occur when product combine?

A chemical reaction will not always occur when two products combine. Some general rules when dealing with single replacement and double replacement reactions are:In a single replacement reaction, a metal can replace another metal if it above the metal it is replacing in the activity series of metals.Hydrogen in acids can be replaced by a metal above hydrogen. Hydrogen in water can be replaced by metals from sodium upwards. In a double replacement reaction, one product must be insoluble in water.


Which metal can replace another metal in a reaction?

a metal higher on the activity series list will replace one that is lower


What kind of reaction is 2Na MgSO4?

Assuming you have a "+" sign in between the two reactants, this represents a single replacement reaction. They products will be Mg and Na2SO4.


What kind of reaction has one element replace another in a compound?

Single displacement reaction. AC+B-->AB+C


What will replace transistors when they get too small?

There is no way to predict this or even predict if there can be such a thing.


When will a double displacement reaction not occur?

A double displacement reaction not occur when an element replace another element only in one molecule.
