Question 47 Exercise

A copper plate was dipped in AgNO3 solution. After certain time, silver from the solution was deposited on the copper plate. State the reason why it happened. Give the chemical equation of the reaction involved.


When a copper plate is dipped in silver nitrate solution silver will get deposited on the copper plate because copper is more reactive than silver and it displaces silver from silver nitrate solution.

2AgNO3 + Cu → Cu(NO3)2(aq) + 2Ag(s)
