Solution: Which metal can be oxidized with an Sn 2+ solution but not with an Fe 2+ solution?

Problem

Which metal can be oxidized with an Sn 2+ solution but not with an Fe 2+ solution?

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the metal that can be oxidized by Sn2+ but not by Fe2+.


Recall that the activity series gives us the relative reactivities of metals to oxidationmetals higher in the activity series are more reactive to oxidation and vice-versa.
