Predicting Products – Single & Double Displacement Reactions

The purpose of this activity is to practice using the Activity Series and to predict whether or not single displacement will occur and identify the products of these reactions. To identify the products of double displacement reactions.

Understanding How to Use the Activity Series

In your own words, explain how to use the Activity Series to another chemistry student. In your answer, indicate the type of reaction to which it applies. You do not need to use complete sentences in your answer. ______


Practice Using the Activity Series

Using the Activity Series, circle the element that is more likely to replace the other in a compound.

F or Br Ni or Na Cl or I Rb or Mn Zn or Fe

Predicting Single Displacement Reactions

Part 1: Use the Activity Series to determine if a reaction will occur.

For those reactions that do occur, predict the products and balance the equation.

If no reaction occurs, write “NR” (No Reaction).

Part 2: Write the chemical name for each compound below

1. Mn + Al(NO3)3 ® ______assume manganese(II)

2. Ba + ZnSO4 ® ______

3. H2 + CuCl2 ® ______

4. F2 + NaBr ® ______

5. Fe + CaSO4 ® ______assume iron(III)

6. Cu + H(OH) ® ______assume copper(II)

7. Br + NH4l ® ______

Predicting Double Displacement Reactions Using the Solubility Rules

For Double Displacement Reactions, assume all reactions occur. Predict the products and balance the final equation.

8. Pb(NO3)2(aq) + LiI(aq) ® ______assume lead(II)

9. NH4Cl(aq) + KI(aq) ® ______

10. CuSO4(aq) + HgNO3(aq) ® ______assume copper(II) & mercury(I)

11. K2CO3(aq) + Cu(NO3)2(aq) ® ______assume copper(II)

12. RbBr(aq) + AgNO3(aq) ® ______assume silver(I)

Mixed Review

Classify each reaction type as SD or DD. Predict whether or not the reaction will occur. If no reaction occurs, write “NR.” If a reaction does occur, predict the products and write a balanced formula equation.

______13. (NH4)2S + ZnCl2 ® ______assume zinc (II)

______14. Al + Co(NO3)2 ® ______

______15. AgNO3 + NaCl ® ______assume silver (I)

______16. CaCl2(aq) + (NH4)2S(aq) ® ______

______17. K3PO4(aq) + Zn(NO3)2(aq) ® ______

______18. Br + CoI2 ® ______
