Single displacement reaction in metalsFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that a more reactive metal will displace the salt compound attached to a less reactive metal, is proven to be true.

Metal ore contains lots of sand impurities and oxides. Displacement reactions are a useful way of extracting the metal from its ore.

Also consider

This science project can also be repeated using other metals like aluminum, tin, etc.
