Caption: A zinc metal strip was immersed into a beaker containing a 0.2M copper (II) sulfate solution. Since zinc is more reactive than copper, a single-displacement reaction occurred: Zn + CuSO4 -> Cu + ZnSO4. In this sequence the left frame was taken before the zinc strip was put into the beaker and the right frame was taken after the strip had been in solution for 10.5 hours and then removed. Note hydrogen gas bubbles that were produced in a secondary reaction.
