# Solution: The metal cadmium tends to form Cd 2+ ions. The following observations are made: (i) When a strip of zinc metal is placed in CdCl2(aq), cadmium metal is deposited on the strip. (ii) When a strip of cadmium metal is placed in Ni(NO3)2(aq), nickel metal is deposited on the strip.Write the net ionic equation to explain observation (i).
