Redox Reactions &
the Activity Series
Directions: Using the activity series in your notes,
determine if the following single replacement reactions will occur. If no, simply write “NR” for No Reaction. If the reaction will occur, then: (1) predict the products of the
reaction; (2) balance the reaction; (3) identify the substances oxidized and
reduced; (4) identify the oxidising and
reducing agents; and (5) write the
oxidation and reduction half reactions.
1) Zn(s) + KF(aq) ?
2) I2(g) + KBr(aq) ?
3) Ca(s) + Mg(OH)2(aq) ?
4) Na(s) + CaI2(aq) ?
5) Cl2(s) + NaBr(aq) ?
6) Mg(g) + KI(aq) ?
7) Cu(s) + AgOH(aq) ?
(copper here is copper (II) )
8) Co(s) + Ni(NO3)2(aq) ?
