Single Displacement Electrochemical Reaction

May 25, 2016

Today we are doing a lab and showing off our skills with stoichiometry and electrochemistry.  We took the mass of a sample of copper wire, and added it to a solution that we made with silver nitrate crystals and distilled water.  Since we know the mass of the crystals, we can calculate the number of moles of silver nitrate we used.  We can predict the number of moles, and the mass of silver we’ll produce, and the mass of copper that we’ll use up.

Pretty quickly we saw evidence of a reaction!  We’ll see the full results, and finish the experiment tomorrow.


Good job everyone!
