A silver spoon is kept immersed in an aqueous solution of copper sulfate. What change would be observed in the spoon as well as in the solution? Justify your answer.

Answer :

No change will be observed on the spoon as well as in the solution. Silver is less reactive than copper as it is placed below copper in metal activity series. So silver cannot displace copper from its salt solution. Hence no changes are observed.
