Question:

Zinc, Zn, is more easily oxidized than copper, Cu. What happens the moment after metal strips of these metals come into contact

Zinc, Zn, is more easily oxidized than copper, Cu.
What happens the moment after metal strips of
these metals come into contact with each other?
o The zinc metal begins to turn a greenish color
indicating the presence of the formation of
cupric oxide, Cuo.
o The zinc metal immediately begins depositing
electrons onto the surface of the copper, thus
coating the copper with a white powder of zinc
oxide, Zno.
Nothing happens. An immediate build up of
charge in either material prevents continued
oxidation-reduction from occurring.
o The surface of the copper appears moist and
cloudy as the zinc metal oxidizes and gets
dissolved into Zn(aq) ions.
