Use the concept of activity series to determine the outcome of the reaction: Al3+(aq) + Pb(s) →
Recall that the activity series gives us the relative reactivities of metals to oxidation: metals higher in the activity series are more reactive to oxidation and vice-versa.
Predict the products for the following combination of reactants: Al3+(aq) + Pb(s)
A. Al(s) and Pb(s)
B. Al(s) and Pb2+(s)
C. Al3+(aq) and Pb4+(aq)
D. Al3+(aq) and Pb2+(aq)
E. no reaction occurs
