Question

What will happen if a strip of zinc is immersed in a solution of copper sulphate?

Solution

If a zinc strip is immersed in a solution of copper sulphate, the blue colour of copper sulphate fades due to the formation of colourless zinc sulphate. The metal, copper, reddish-brown in colour is deposited on the zinc strip.
CuSO4(aq) +  Zn(s) → ZnSO4(aq) + Cu(s)

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
