REDOX

The Reactivity Series Of Metal


Did you know
The more reactive the metal with an oxygen, the
more bright the flame when reacted

E
- Burn very rapidly
Mg - very bright white flame produces MgO formed
- white powder formed
- burn rapidly
- brightly glow
Zn ZnO formed
- powder formed as yellow when hot
and white when cold
- burn less rapidly
iron(III)
Fe - the glow is less than zinc
oxide, Fe2O3
- reddish brown powder is formed
- burn slowly
- faint glow lead(II) oxide
Pb
powder formed as brown when hot is formed
and yellow when cold
- burn very slow
copper(II)
Cu - very faint(malap) glow
oxide, CuO
- black powder is formed

[Can you name all the metal P, Q, R, S, above?]

General equation for the reaction is as shown below;

metal + oxygen → metal oxide


can you write the chemical equation for all reaction above?
Chemical equation
2Mg + O2 → 2MgO
2Zn + O2 → 2ZnO
4Fe + 3O2 → 2Fe2O3
2Pb + O2 → 2PbO
2Cu + O2 → 2CuO

The brightness and glow of flame determine the


place of the metal in the reactivity series

can you produce the reactivity series of metal now?

Zn Metal that less reactive


Reactivity Fe Zn, Fe, Sn, Pb – Extraction
of metal is Sn through reduction of metal
increase oxide by carbon
Pb
