Science Practical (C10)

A student added few pieces of aluminium metal to two test tubes A and B containing aqueous solutions of iron sulphate and copper sulphate. In the second part of her experiment, she added iron metal to another test tubes C and D containing aqueous solutions of aluminium sulphate and copper sulphate.

In which test tube or test tubes will she observe colour change? On the basis of this experiment, state which one is the most reactive metal and why.

Answer

In the test tube A, B, D she will observe colour change.

Aluminum is the most reactive metal, because it displaces Iron, Zinc and Copper from their aqueous salt solutions.
