Can you store copper sulphate solutions in a zinc pot?
Zinc is more reactive than copper. Therefore, zinc can displace copper from its salt solution. If copper sulphate solution is stored in a zinc pot, then zinc will displace copper from the copper sulphate solution
`Zn+CuSO_4 -> ZnSO_4 + Cu`
Hence, copper sulphate solution cannot be stored in a zinc pot.
