Investigation: Developing an Activity Series for Metal Copper (II), Magnesium and Nickel Tong Wu Question: “What is the effect of solution type and metal type on metal reactivity as measured by whether a chemical reaction has taken place? ” Prediction: *Using metal magnesium as an example illustration I. (Magnesium reacts with lead (II) nitrate) Mg + Pb(NO3)2 Pb + Mg(NO3)2 II. (Magnesium reacts with zinc nitrate) Mg + Zn(NO3)2 Zn + Mg(NO3)2 III. (Magnesium reacts with iron (III) nitrate) 3Mg + 2Fe(NO3)3 2Fe + 3Mg(NO3)2 Variables: The dependent variable for this investigation is the reactivity of each metal as measured by the occurring of chemical reactions between each combination of three…show more content…
