Classify the following redox reaction as a combination, decomposition, or displacement reaction:
Zn(s) + 2AgNO3(aq

 Zn(NO3)2(aq) + 2Ag(s)


Expert Answer

Step 1

The reaction in which a molecule breaks or decompose to form new molecule is termed as decomposition reaction.

The reaction in which two or more atoms or group of atoms combine together to form a new compound is known as combination reaction.

Step 2

The reaction in which a less reactive metal is displaced by a more reactive metal is known as displacement or replacement reaction.

The reaction in which a single atom or element replaces another element in a compound is called single replacement reaction.

The reaction in which two or more element replaces another elements in a compound is called double replacement reaction

Step 3

According to the reaction, zinc replaces silver in the salt solution of silver therefore, the give...
