The Displacement Reactions

Purpose: to see how displacement reaction works with different chemicals and what chemical has more reactivity series then other

Hypothesis:
Iron + Copper Sulfate: Iron will displace copper because it is more reactive and it is going to end up as Iron Sulphide + Copper
Copper + Silver Nitrate: Copper will displace Silver because it is more reactive and it is going to end up as Copper Nitride +
Magnesium + Copper oxide: Magnesium will displace Copper because it is more reactive.
Aluminum + Iron Oxide: Aluminum will displace Iron because it is more reactive.
Zinc + Hydrochloric acid: Zinc will replace Hydrogen because it is more reactive.
Copper + Hydrochloric Acid: Copper will not displace Hydrogen because copper is more reactive.
Magnesium + Hydrochloric acid: Magnesium will displace Hydrogen because it is more reactive and end up as Magnesium Chloride + Hydrogen.
Sodium + Hydrochloric acid: Sodium will displace Hydrogen because it is more reactive and end up as Sodium Chloride + Hydrogen.

Apparatus: Test Tube, Goggles, Iron nail, Copper Wire, Silver Nitrate, Hydrochloric Acid, Magnet, Zinc, Magnesium, Sodium, Aluminum

Procedure:
Iron + Copper Sulfate: Obtain a test tube and fill it with Copper Sulfate till its half full. place iron nail in the test tube carefully and wait for 10 minutes
Copper + Silver Nitrate: Obtain a test tube place the copper wire inside it carefully then put Silver Nitrate till it is half way filled. Wait for 10 minutes and observe what happens
Magnesium + Copper oxide: Obtain a small beaker put some magnesium and copper in the beaker then carefully turn on the heating stand. Then place the beaker under the heating stand make sure to stand away from it and record observation frequently.
Aluminum + Iron Oxide: make a mixture of Aluminum and iron oxide. Obtain a 200 ml beaker and place the mixture inside

    of metals arranged in order of their reactivity based on displacement reactions, reduction of their oxides by hydrogen or carbon, the relative ease of decomposition of their compounds and reactions with oxygen, dilute acids and water. The higher up a metal is in the reactivity series, the more reactive it is. In the experiment conducted, the three metals, magnesium, zinc and copper each had to undergo displacement reactions and reactions with water, oxygen and dilute acids, to arrange them in the…

    chemical reactions using physical and chemical properties and balanced chemical equations. There are four different types of chemical reactions decomposition reactions, single displacement reactions, synthesis reactions, and double displacement reactions. A decomposition reaction happens when a compound breaks into two or more elements or compounds. Generally, for decomposition reactions heat, energy, light or electricity is needed to separate the compound. In a single displacement reaction, a single…

    A double displacement reaction is a type of chemical reaction in which two compounds react in order to create two new chemicals. The two cations and anions switch places with each other which forms two new compounds. As an example AB+CC can switch to AD+CB. Both sides of these equations must balance out in order to be neutral. So any pairs of compounds (such as A+B) must have a total balanced charge. In this example A could have a charge of positive 2 (+2) and B could have a charge of negative…

    change of a displacement reaction Aim: To determine the enthalpy change for the displacement reaction between zinc powder and copper (II) sulphate solution. Zn (s) + Cu2+ (aq) → Cu2+ (s) + Zn2+ (aq) Theory: For the displacement reaction, an excess amount of zinc powder is added to the measured amount of aqueous copper (II) sulphate. The temperature change over a period of time has to be measured and thus, the enthalpy change for the reaction can be measured. The equation of the above reaction is: Zn…

    Single Displacement Reaction The objective of this experiment was to observe evidence of a reaction and to determine the chemical equation, if there is a reaction. In order for a reaction to occur, a metal strip must have evidence of black or grey deposits on the surface of the metal once dipped into the solution. The reactivity of an element is related to its tendency to lose or gain electrons. Three metal strips that were used are copper, lead and zinc as well as the solutions of silver nitrate…

    The purpose of this lab was to find the theoretical and experimental percentage yields of the double displacement reaction between the solutions Lead (II) Nitrate (PbNO3) and Potassium Iodide (KI). It is important to obtain amounts of Lead (II) Nitrate and Potassium Iodide as close to 1.44g as possible. This reaction creates Lead (II) Iodide and Potassium Nitrate. The precipitate during this reaction is Lead (II) Iodide. The balanced equation is Pb(NO3)2 + 2KI= PbI2 + 2KNO3. In this lab the Lead (II)…
