Iron filings are dropped in aqueous solution of copper sulphate. or Iron dissolved in aqueous solution of copper sulphate. - Science and Technology 1

Short Note

Write chemical equation for the event.

Iron filings are dropped in aqueous solution of copper sulphate.

Iron dissolved in aqueous solution of copper sulphate.

Solution

Iron displaces copper from copper sulphate solution forming ferrous sulphate and copper.

$\ce{\underset{\text{Iron}}{Fe_{(s)}} + \underset{\text{Copper sulphate}}{CuSO_{4(aq)}} -> \underset{\text{Ferrous sulphate}}{FeSO_{4(aq)}} + \underset{\text{Copper}}{Cu_{(s)}}}$
