The reactivity series of metals

 Definition: the metal reactivity series is used to predict displacement reactions, either:

1.  Electrolysis

2.  Displacement reactions (metal against compound)

3.  Reduction reactions (carbon against compound)


In the reactivity series metal reactivity has its own list


1.  Carbon is only included to predict displacement of metals in compound.

2.  Hydrogen is only included to predict electrolysis reactions.
