If the zinc salt is soluble and the analogous silver salt is not, silver will displace the zinc as the silver salt precipitates out.

For example, zinc chloride is soluble, but the solubility of silver chloride is very low. If silver nitrate is added to a zinc chloride solution, silver chloride will precipitate out, leaving zinc nitrate in solution.

No, it won't. Because zinc is much more active than gold is.

Copper cannot displace zinc from its salt solution?

because in table of re-activity of metals it is below zinc

A metal which cannot replace zinc from zinc sulfate solution?

Copper is a metal that cannot replace zinc from zinc sulfate solution. This is because copper has a lower reactivity than zinc and cannot displace it in a chemical reaction.

Zinc can displace copper from copper sulphate solution because zinc is?

More reactive than copper.

What happens when silver nitrate solution is stored in zinc vessel?

Some of the silver ions from the silver nitrate solution are deposited as metallic silver on the contacted parts of the zinc vessel and are replaced by half as many zinc ions in the solution.

Zinc metal is added to a solution of silver nitrate?

Zinc nitrate and silver are formed. Silver gets precipitated.

Does copper displace zinc from zinc sulphate?

No, zinc will displace copper from copper sulphate but not the other way around.

When a strip of zinc is placed in a solution of silver nitrate Zn replaces Ag to form zinc nitrate and metallic silver is formed How many moles of silver will be generated if 1 point 30 moles of Zn?

As shown by the ionic equation of the reaction, Zn (s) + 2 Ag+ (aq) --> 2 Ag (s) + Zn2+ (aq), each mole of zinc produces two moles of silver. Therefore, 1.30 moles of zinc will displace 2.60 moles of silver.

When zinc metal is placed into a solution of copper sulphate a pinky brown metal is formed but when a piece of silver metal is placed into another solution of copper sulphate no change is observed Why?

Silver is lower in the reactivity series than Zinc and therfore cannot displace the Sulphate from the Zinc. But on the other hand zinc is higher than copper, and when displacing the sulphate from the copper it changes colour due to the reaction. Reactivity series(metals): Potassium Sodium Lithium Calcium Magnesium Aluminium Zinc Iron Tin Lead Copper Silver Gold Platinum

What happens when iron pieces added in zinc sulphate solution?

Actually, nothing will happen. This is because iron is much less reactive than zinc, which means it is unable to displace the zinc from the sulfate solution. If you were to do the reverse, the zinc would displace the iron in the iron sulfate solution to get zinc sulfate and Iron.

What happens to zinc when dipped in silver nitrate?

Parts of the zinc near its interface with an aqueous solution of silver nitrate dissolve into zinc cations in the soution, and the corresponding electrical charge of silver cations is reduced to metallic silver, usually adhering to the surface of the remaining zinc.

What is the word equation for the reduction of zinc?

3Zn(s) + Fe2(SO4)3(aq) -----> 3ZnSO4(aq) + 2Fe(s) Zinc will displace iron from its salt solution as it is more reactive....
