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…
What determines whether one metal will replace another metal from a compound in a single-replacement reaction?
How do you use the activity series of metals to predict the products of a single-replacement reaction?
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.
Knee joint replacement involves replacing part or all of a knee joint that has been damaged or worn away with a prosthesis (new joint made of metal and plastic) to reduce pain and improve function. There are two types of knee joint replacement: 1) Partial Knee Replacement - where only one side of the knee joint is removed and replaced with a metal and plastic prosthesis. It is sometimes known as a Unicompartmental Knee Replacement…
