Question

What happens when a piece of iron metal is placed in copper sulphate solution? Name the type of reaction involved.

Solution

When a piece of iron is placed in copper sulphate solution, it becomes brown in colour and the blue colour of the copper sulphate solution fades. This is because iron, being more reactive metal than copper, displaces copper from its solution.
       Fe (s) + CuSO4 (aq) → FeSO4(aq) + Cu(s)
Thus, the type of reaction involved is displacement reaction

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
