Complete the following word equation

a.       Zinc + lead nitrate solution

b.      Iron + zinc sulphate solution

c.       Lead + copper nitrate solution

d.      Magnesium + Silver nitrate solution

e.      Copper + potassium chloride solution

Dear student, 
Please find below the solution to the asked query:
a)Zinc + Lead nitrate  Zinc nitrate + Lead
 Zn + Pb(NO3)2 Zn(NO3)2 + Pb

​b)Iron + Zinc sulphate solution  No reaction
Iron lies below Zinc in the reactivity series and thus is unable to displace Zn from its solution. Hence, no reaction takes place.

​c)Lead + copper nitrate  Lead nitrate + Copper
Pb + Cu(NO3)2  Pb(NO3)2 +Cu

d)Magnesium + silver nitrate  Magnesium nitrate + silver
Mg + 2AgNO3 Mg(NO3)2 + 2Ag

​e)Copper + potassium chloride No reaction
Potassium lies above Copper in the reactivity series and hence Cu cannot displace potassium from its salts.
