• Iron is more reactive than copper.
• So, when iron fillings are added to copper sulphate solution, iron displaces copper from copper sulphate and takes the place of copper forming ferrous sulphate.
• Hence, the displacement reaction takes place.
• The formation of ferrous sulphate leads to the change in colour.
• The blue colour of solution changes to pale green colour.
• The layer becomes brown in colour.
