Arrangement of metals in order of increasing reduction power

Post by Dhamnekar Winod »

You are given aqueous solutions of AgNO3, Cu(NO3)2, Mg(NO3)2, Fe(NO2)3, Zn(NO3)2, and Ni(NO3)2. You also have available the free metal of each of the six cations. Using only these materials, can you suggest a chemical method for arranging the metals in order of increasing reducing power?

How to answer this question? and what is the answer to this question?

I am working on this question. Any chemistry help will be accepted.

Immerse each metal in the given solutions. If a precipitation takes place the given Metall is more inoble as the one in the solution.

For example a copper wire will coated with silver if immersed in silver nitrate.
In opposit a silver coin will not harmed by copper nitrate.
