When copper metal is placed in a beaker containing a solution of silver nitrate, a reaction occurs which can be represented by the following equation:
2AgNO3(aq) + Cu(s) -----> Cu(NO3)2(aq) + 2Ag(s)
a) Give the net ionic equation to represent this reaction occurring
b) Give one piece of evidence which would indicate that a chemical reaction has occurred.
2. The attempt at a solution
a) i have no idea how to write the ionic equation for this
b) is it that a displacement has happened?
