Problem 71P

Which metal has the least tendency to be oxidized?

(a) Ag

(b) Na

(c) Ni

(d) Pb

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution: Here, we are going to identify the metal having least tendency to be oxidized.

Step1:

The term “oxidation” is defined as the addition of oxygen/electronegative element to a substance or removal of hydrogen/ electropositive element from a substance. In terms of electron transfer, the reactions that involve loss of electrons are called oxidation reactions. The substance which undergoes oxidation are said to be oxidized.

Out of all the metals above, silver(Ag) has the least tendency to lose electrons and hence Ag has the least tendency to be oxidized.
