Caption: Nickel displacing copper. Nickel (Ni) strip in a solution of copper (II) sulphate (CuSO4). Nickel is more reactive than the copper, and has replaced it in the solution. Solid copper (Cu) forms on the nickel in what is termed a displacement or substitution reaction. The nickel can be placed above copper in a reactivity series. This amount of copper formed after 1.5 hours.
