You are supposed to dissolve a small amount of Cu solid metal in HCl (aq). Based on your observation you would be able to determine if copper metal dissolved in this acid. 1. Using standard reduction potential table predict whether Cu metal and Ni metal will dissolve in HCl acid. Write appropriate reduction and oxidation reactions, use standard reduction potential values to support your answer. 2. Summarize the rule that allows one to predict if a metal will dissolve in HCl acid.
