There is a particular reactivity series in metals, which decides that which metal is more reactive then the other.The one on the top is the most reactive and the one on the bottom is the least.The reactivity Series is as follows:

1.Potassium- K -----Most reactive

2.Berium-Ba

3.Calcium-Ca

4.Sodium-Na

5.Magnesium-Mg

6.Aluminium-Al

7.Zinc-Zn

8.Iron-Fe

9.Nickel-Ni

10.Tin-Tn

11.Lead-Pb

12.Hydrogen-H2

13.Copper-Cu

14.Mercury-Hg

15.Silver-Ag

16.Gold-Au

17.Platinum-Pt ------Least Reactive.

Now, here we see that iron is on the top then copper.It means that iron is more reactive then copper. Thus it replaces copper in its solution.Copper sulphate solution is blue in colour but if iron comes in its contact then the solution turns green due to formation of iron sulphate.Such reaction in which one less reactive metal is displaced by a more reactive one is called 'DISPLACEMENT REACTION'

Yes, iron reacts with copper nitrate. It is some kind of a single displacement reaction. Iron is more reactive than copper, therefore it will displace copper and take its place. In this process, iron will react with copper to form iron nitrate and copper will be left as a residue or precipitate.

yes, it is true. Since iron is more reactive than copper, it displaces copper from any if its solution. The reaction takes place as :-

Fe + CuSO4 ---------> FeSO4 + Cu

(Blue color (Light green

No. Iron is higher on the reactivity series for metals than copper. Therefore, copper is less reactive than iron, and will not displace it. Refer to the related link for a reactivity series of metals.

Yes, because iron is higher on the activity series of metals than copper.

CuSO4 + Fe [arrow] FeSO4 + Cu

yes

Fe is above Cu in the electrochemical series

Fe + CuO >>>> FeO + Cu

No, iron will not react with iron sulfate. In iron sulfate, iron and the sulfate radical are already bonded. Adding more iron will not change what is already there.

No it does not as iron is higher in the reactivity series.

cu has low reactivity than iron.. so it cant replace iron from iron sulphate.. hence no reaction

Why iron does not displace sodium from salt solution?

Iron does not displace sodium from a salt solution because it is not reactive enough. Iron does, however, displace Cu from a copper sulphate solution.


Does copper displace zinc from zinc sulphate?

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


What happens when iron sulphate reacts with copper powder?

Nothing happens, because copper is below iron in the reactivity series, so it can't displace iron in iron compounds


What is a word equation for the single-displacement reaction of iron and copper sulfate?

The iron will displace the copper as it is more reactive. here's the equation: iron + copper sulphate = iron sulphate +copper


Why copper cannot displace iron from iron sulphate solution?

Iron is more reactive than copper. In other words, compared to copper, iron is more stable in a compound while copper is more stable as a pure element than iron is.

Can iron be in a copper color?

not pure iron... But you can provide a covering over iron to make it look like copper by just dipping it into copper sulphate solution .. Because Iron is more reactive than Copper ... it will displace it in the solution .. the color of solution will change so as the color of iron!


Why will iron displace copper from aqueous solutions of copper salts?

Because iron is more reactive than copper. If iron displaces copper, that releases energy (enthalpy). If copper were to displace iron, that would require energy to be used. This is less favourable and , averaged over the huge number of molecules, atoms and ions in the solution, the more energy producing reaction is vastly preferred. Hence, iron put into copper sulphate solution gets coated in copper and the solution slowly loses its blue colour. But if you put copper metal in iron sulphate solution, nothing noticable occurs.
