2.31 deduce the position of a metal within the reactivity series using displacement reactions between metals and their oxides, and between metals and their salts in aqueous solutions

A metal oxide or a metal salt dissolved in water:

  • introduce a more reactive metal and it will displace the current one
  • introduce a less reactive metal and no displacement will take place
From this you can deduce which metals are more and less reactive.
