1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A pole of Zn is put in a FeCl2 solution and in a HgCl2 solution. FInd in which case the mass of the pole of zinc has become grater and when less 2. Relevant equations Zn+FeCl2->ZnCl2+Fe Zn+HgCl2->ZnCl2Hg 3. The attempt at a solution As Zn is much active than Hg than it goes in the Hg compound to form ZnCl2. By making the mass of the pole less. But I'm not sure about the answer as the two reactions seem to be similar.
