Experiment 20: An Electrochemical Series for AP Chemistry

By — McGraw-Hill Professional
Updated on Feb 8, 2011

For a quick review on stoichiometry, refer to the following concepts:

Synopsis

The reactivity of several metals with solutions containing ions of other metals is observed. This experiment involves the development of an activity series. (See the Reactions and Periodicity chapter.)

Equipment

      beaker(s)
      forceps
      graduated cylinder
      test tube(s)
      test tube rack

Measurements

This experiment is based on observations, not measurements.

Calculations

Observations, not calculations, are needed.

Comments

The more active metal will displace a less active metal from a solution.

Hydrogen is usually included in the series by using acids.
