Activity Series Lab Andrew De La Mata Vanessa Gearhart
Activity Series Chlorine (Cl) Magnesium (Mg) Aluminum (Al) Zinc (Zn) Iron (Fe) Tin (Sn) Copper (Cu) • The results from the lab match the activity series and its corresponding elements in this order.
Blue Liquid A blue liquid is a good sign that a Cu ion (+2) is present. Although copper is a dark brown solid, when it is in a compound it takes the charge of +2 and this charged particle has a blue color which is why the aqueous solution that we used, CuCl2, is blue.
Zinc • If zinc were added to the three compounds used, the results would be as follows:
