Caption: Magnesium is more reactive than copper. Hence, when copper coil was added to a test tube containing a 0.2M magnesium chloride solution, no displacement reaction took place (left frame). On the contrary, when magnesium coil was added to a test tube containing a 0.2M copper (II) sulfate solution, a single-displacement reaction occurred (right frame). Copper metal and magnesium sulfate formed as a result: Mg + CuSO4 -> Cu + MgSO4.
