The activity (or reactivity) series determines whether or not a metal will replace another one in a replacement reaction.
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).
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.
Look up either their half-cell potentials or their electronegativity and the one with the higher value will become the ion.
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.
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.
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.
It is inverse.
no, nonmetals replace nonmetals and metals replace metals.
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)
Single Replacement Reaction.
Yes it is a chemical reaction, where 2 cations replace each other.
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.
you really cant
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
Fluorine will replace bromine to produce the compound lithium fluoride in a single replacement reaction.
Since calcium is more reactive than silver, silver cannot replace calcium in this single-replacement reaction.
no because cobal is more reactive than copper
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.
a metal higher on the activity series list will replace one that is lower
Assuming you have a "+" sign in between the two reactants, this represents a single replacement reaction. They products will be Mg and Na2SO4.
Single displacement reaction. AC+B-->AB+C
There is no way to predict this or even predict if there can be such a thing.
A double displacement reaction not occur when an element replace another element only in one molecule.
