b. 0.150 M Ca(NO3)2

Problem 55E: Solution: Here, we are going to write the balanced chemical equations for the given set of reactions with the help of reactivity series. Step1: The reactivity series is a list of metals arranged in the order of their decreasing activities. We can say that all metals are not equally reactive. That is why, reactive metals can displace less reactive metals from their compounds in solution or molten form. In order to know, which metal is more reactive, several experiments were performed, and finally a series known as the reactivity or activity series was developed. Step2: a) Iron metal is added to a solution of copper(ll) nitrate Since iron is placed above copper in the reactivity series, it is more reactive than copper. Hence, it will displace copper from its nitrate solution. The balanced chemical equation is: Fe(s) + Cu(NO ) 3 2-------> Fe(NO ) (a3 2Cu(s) b) Zinc metal is added to a solution of magnesium sulfate Since, zinc is placed below magnesium in the activity series, it is less reactive than...
