WHEN METALS REACT WITH SOLUTION OF OTHER METAL SALTS:-
Reactive metals can displace less reactive metals from their compounds in solution or molten form.
Metal A + Salt solution of B → Salt solution of A + Metal B
The Reactivity Series:-
K > Na > Ca > Mg > Al > Zn > Fe >Pb >H > Cu > Hg > Ag > Au

A copper plate was dipped in AgNO3 solution. After certain time, silver from the solution was deposited on the copper plate. State the reason why it happened. Give the chemical equation of the reaction involved.
A zinc plate was kept in a glass container having CuSO4 solution. On examining it was found that the blue colour of the solution is getting lighter and lighter. After a few days, when the zinc plate was taken out of the solution, a number of small holes were noticed in it. State the reason and give chemical equation of the reaction involved.
You are given a solution of AgNO3. Which of the following do you think cannot displace Ag from AgNO3solution?
