Reaction of iron with copper sulphate

Experiment No: …5…. Date: ………..

(a) Iron with copper sulphate solution

Objectives: To study the reaction of iron with copper sulphate

Requirements: Iron nails, thread, test tubes, copper sulphate, distilled water, spatula, TT stand, sand paper, etc.

Points to remember:

1. Colour of pure iron is greyish

2. Colour of pure copper is brownish.

3. Aqueous solution of copper sulphate is blue due to the presence of Cu2+ ions and ferrous sulphate is light

green due to the presence of Fe2+ ions.

4. Fe is more reactive than Cu. Due to their difference in reactivity, copper get deposited on iron when

iron is kept in a solution of copper sulphate and metallic iron dissolves in water to form iron sulphate.

5. This is an example of a single displacement reaction.


1. Take 10 ml each of copper sulphate solution in two test tubes and keep on a TT stand.

2. Take two iron nails and clean them using a sand paper to remove any rust.

3. Put one iron nail in one of the test tubes.

4. After 15 minutes, take out the iron nail keep it on a filter paper next to the clean iron nail and compare

them. Compare also the solutions in both the test tubes.

5. Record your observation in the following table.

Nature of the: Observation Inference

Iron nail before the


Silvery grey in colour and

lustrous Metals are lustrous.

Iron nail after the experiment Brown deposit on the nail

Copper is deposited on the nail due the

displacement reaction that takes place

between Fe & Cu.

Solution before the


Light blue and


Copper sulphate solution is peacock blue in


Solution after the experiment Light green and dirty

Due to the chemical reaction, Fe displaces Cu

fromCuSO4 and FeSO4 is formed in the solution.

Dirtiness is due to the rusting of iron.


Fe displaces Cu from CuSO4 and forms FeSO4 in the solution hence the colour of the solution changes from light

blue to pale green. The displaced copper gets deposited on iron nail. It appears as brown coating on iron nail


1. Iron nail should be clean; otherwise impurity such as rust will cause interference to the expected


2. During the experiment the test tube should not be disturbed. (The deposit of copper might fall off)

3. More the time taken better will be the result.

(b) Burning of Magnesium in air

Objectives: To study the burning of Mg in air

Requirements: A strip of Mg ribbon, a pair of tongs, china dish, Bunsen burner, litmus paper, match box etc.

Points to remember:

1. Mg is an active metal.It combines with oxygen to form magnesium oxide.

2. The reaction is an example of direct combination reaction.

3. MgO on dissolving (It is only partially soluble) in water gives a base magnesium hydroxide.

4. Both MgO and Mg(OH)2 turn red litmus blue.


1. Take a clean strip of Mg ribbon and burn it by showing to a Bunsen flame with the help of a pair of


2. Collect the white powder that is formed during burning in a china dish.


Rub the magnesium ribbon with a

sand paper

Silvery grey colour with


Metals are lustrous

Burn Mg ribbon and note the nature of

the flame and smoke.

It burns with an intensely

bright flame and white


Mg burns in oxygen to form MgO

Put a small portion of the white

powder on a moist red litmus paper.

Red litmus turns to blue MgO is alkaline/basic. It dissolves in

water to form Mg(OH)2


1. When Mg burns in air, it combines with oxygen (of air) to form a white powder of magnesium oxide. &

MgO is basic in nature.


1. Mg ribbon should be clean

2. Avoid looking directly at the flame when the Mg ribbon burns as the intensity of the flame may damage

your eye sight.

3. A pair of tongs should be used to hold the Mg ribbon while burning.

4. The white powder formed should not come in contact with your body partsReaction of Zinc with

sulphuric acid

(c) Zinc with Dil.Sulphuric acid

Objectives: To study the chemical reaction between Zn and dil H2SO4 acid.

Points to remember:

1. Zn is an active metal. It has two valance electrons.

2. Hydrogen is less reactive than Zn, so the following reaction takes place when Zn comes in contact with


3. This reaction is an example of a single displacement .


Take a small piece of Zn granule in

a test tube and treat it with 3 ml

of dilute sulphuric acid. Wait for

10 minutes.

Slow evolution of a colourless

odourless gas.

Zn displaces H2 gas from HCl and

forms ZnCl2

Zn + H2SO4  Zn SO4 + H2


1. Sulphuric acid should be handled carefully.

2. Use clean Zn granules.


Zn is more reactive than hydrogen.

(d)Heating of Copper sulphate

Objective : To study the chemical reaction when hydrated copper sulphate is heated.

Apparatus: Test tubes ,bunsen burner ,hydrated copper sulphate,tongs ,spatula etc

Theory : The hydrated copper sulphate loses its water of crystallisation on heating

CuSO4.5H2O CuSO4 + 5H2O

blue white

 It is a reversible chemical reaction


Experiment Observation Inference

Take 1 spatula of hydrated copper

sulphate (blue) in a hard glass

tube gently heat over a Bunsen

flame .

Blue coloured copper sulphate

changes to white

Hydrated copper sulphate loses

water of crystallisation on heating

and becomes anhydrous.

 Use safety goggle while heating..

 Be careful when you handle hot objects.

(e) Reaction between Sodium sulphate &Barium chloride

Objectives: To study the chemical reaction between Sodium sulphate and Barium Chloride.

Requirements: Solutions of Na2SO4 & BaCl2, test tubes etc.

Points to remember:

1. Sodium sulphate contains 2 sodium ions and one sulphate ion.

2. On mixing the solutions a double displacement reactions takes place.


Take 1 ml of Sodium sulphate

solution in a test tube and add 1

ml of BaCl2 solution to it. Record

the change observed.

A white precipitate is formed The white precipitate formed is


Na2SO4+BaCl2  BaSO4+2NaCl
