Lesson: Reactivity SeriesChemistry
In this lesson, we will learn how to use the reactions of metals with water, acids, oxygen, hydrogen, and metal oxides to determine the metals’ order of reactivity.
When powdered metal is mixed with an aqueous solution containing ions of metal , a precipitate of metal is formed. Based on this observation, what may be concluded about the relative reactivities of metals and ?
It is often necessary to paint or galvanize iron objects to protect them from corrosion. Aluminum, however, resists corrosion without the need for a protective coating. Why is the corrosion resistance of aluminum greater than that of iron?
Which of the following statements describing the reactivity between pairs of metals is not correct?
