3.2  Can you store copper sulphate solutions in a zinc pot?

Answers (1)

The standard electrode potential of Zinc is - 0.76 whereas that of Copper is 0.34. So Zinc will reduce copper into the lower state.

It is known that zinc is more reactive than copper. Thus if we will store copper sulphate solution in zinc pot then zinc will displace copper from its solution.

The following reaction will take place:-

Zn \:+\:CuSO_{4}\rightarrow ZnSO_{4}\:+\:Cu
