Use the activity series to determine whether aluminum would replace the metals in the chemical compounds listed in Data Table 1. Does the activity series' ability to predict whether or not a reaction will occur agree with your observations?

Step 1

The activity series is a series of metals in the order of  higher to lower reactivity. This order is used to determine the products of single displacement reactions, in which the metal “A” will replace another metal “B” in a solution, if the metal “A” is higher  than the metal “B” or other metal in the series .

Simply, only a metal higher in the reactivity series will displace another.

 For example,

Sodium and Copper chloride will react, since the sodium is the most reactive in the activity order series and can replace the copper.

Whereas the copper and sodium chloride will not react, as copper is lower in the activity order series and cannot replace the sodium.

Step 2

Given compounds:

1. AgNO
2. CuSO
3. СаCl,
4. РЬ(NO,)

1. AgNO 2. CuSO 3. СаCl, 4. РЬ(NO,)

Step 3

In  the given activity series the Aluminium is lying above the silver(Ag)...

Al(Alumium +AgNO -Metal displacement occurs
Al(Alumium)CuSO4> Metal displacement occurs
Al(Alumium) Pb(NO;) - Metal displacement occurs
Al(Alumium+ CaC2 ->No Metal displacement occurs
