Zinc is more reactive than copper. Therefore, zinc can displace copper from its salt solution. If copper sulphate solution is stored in a zinc pot, then zinc will displace copper from the copper sulphate solution.
A solution of glucose in water is labelled as 10% w/w, what would be the molality and mole fraction of each component in the solution? If the density of solution is 1.2 g mL-1, then what shall be the molarity of the solution?
The vapour pressure of pure liquids A and B are 450 and 700 mm Hg respectively, at 350 K. Find out the composition of the liquid mixture if total vapour pressure is 600 mm Hg. Also find the composition of the vapour phase.
A streamlined body is a shape that decreases the friction drag between a fluid, such as air and water, and an object that passes through that fluid. Drag is the force which reduces the speed of the motion.
Copper is less reactive than zinc. Zinc will replace the copper from its salt solution. When the copper sulphate solution is stored in a zinc pot, copper is replaced by zinc, in the copper sulphate solution.
Now, in the above set up, the specie with higher reduction potential is weak reducing agent and the specie with lower reduction potential is strong reducing agent. Therefore, in the above set up, the copper will not be able to reduce Zinc from Zn2+ to Zn. Thus, Zinc sulphate can be stored in Copper container.
