lead displaces copper from copper

nitrate solution. The green colour of copper
nitrate solution fades due to the formation of colourless

solution of lead nitrate. A red-brown
layer of copper metal is deposited on the lead strip. Please note that lead is able to displace
copper from copper nitrate solution because lead is more reactive than copper. Another point to be
noted is that copper used in this reaction is actually copper
