Comparing metals with reactivity

Reactive strong drive to become a compound
Potassium with water very violent with cold water, catches fire, produces: hydrogen and potassium hydroxide
Sodium with water violent with cold water, produces: hydrogen and sodium hydroxide
Calcium with water less violent with cold water, produces: hydrogen and calcium hydroxide
Magnesium with water very slow reaction with cold water, vigorous with steam, produces hydrogen and magnesium oxide
Zinc with water quite slow with steam, produces: hydrogen and zinc oxide
Iron with water slow with steam, produces: hydrogen and iron oxide (rust)
Copper/Silver/Gold with water no reaction
Magnesium with HCl vigorous, produces: hydrogen and solution of magnesium chloride
Zinc with HCl quite slow, produces: hydrogen and zinc chloride
Iron with HCl slow, produces: hydrogen and iron (ii) chloride
Lead with HCl slow, only if concentrated, produces: hydrogen and lead (ii) chloride
Copper/Silver/Gold with HCl no reaction even if conc.
Hydrogen displacement Hydrogen is displaced by a more reactive metal
Competing to be the compound in solution A metal will always displace a less reactive metal from solutions of its compounds
Competing for oxygen When a metal is heated with the oxide of a less reactive metal, it acts as a reducing agent. It is always exothermic –gives out heat
Oxidation gain of oxygen, loss of electrons, loss of hydrogen
Reduction loss of oxygen, gain of hydrogen/electrons

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
