Purpose: to make observation of the reaction, to write equations, balance them and to determine the relative activity of a metal.
Equipment
  1. Test tubes
  2. Zinc metal
  3. Copper metal
  4. Iron Metal
  5. Magnesium metal
  6. Solutions
Procedure
  1. Obtain 2 clean test tubes and pour 2 ml of each solution. Add a piece of zinc metal to each solution. If there isn’t a immediate reaction allow the test tubes to stand for some minutes. Record your observations.
  2. Repeat the step above for each metal. After done with the experiment clean each test tube thoroughly between each set of reactions.
Metal | Solutions |
| ZnCl2 | CuCl2 | Fecl3 | MgCl2 | HCL |
Zn | | R; Turned Darker in color | R; Started bubbling | NR | R; Started bubbling and the test tube god foggy |
Cu | NR | | NR | NR | NR |
Fe | NR | R; Iron turned a coppery color | | No Reaction | R; Started Bubbling |
Mg | R; Started Bubbling | R; Started Bubbling | R; Slightly Bubbled | | R; Started bubbling, the Mg turned white and dissolved |

Conclusion:
  1. Mg
  2. Zn
  3. Fe
  4. Cu
2.
  A.   1 Zn+1CuCl2 1 ZnCl2+1Cu
  B.   3 Zn+ 2 FeCl3 3 ZnCl2+2 Fe
  C.   1 Zn+2 FeCl3   1 ZnCl2+2 Fe
  D.   2 Fe+ 3 CuCl2 2 FeCl3+3 Cu
  E. 2 Fe + 6 HCl     2FeCl3+3 H2
  F. 1 Mg+ 1 ZnCl2 1MgCl2+1Zn
  G. 1 Mg+1   CuCl2 1MgCl2+1Cu
  H. 3 Mg+2   FeCl3 3MgCl2+2Fe
  I. 1 Mg+2 HCL     1MgCl2+1H2
