Caption: An iron metal strip was immersed in a beaker containing a 0.5M copper (II) sulfate solution. Since iron is more reactive than copper, a single-displacement reaction occurred: Fe + CuSO4 -> Cu + FeSO4. Here we see the strip just before being put into the beaker (left) and removed after 18 hours in the solution (right).
