  • lists elements on order of reactivity
    • by comparing similar reactions with
      • water
        • metal + water = metal hydroxide + hydrogen
      • steam
        • metal + steam = metal oxide +hydrogen
      • oxygen
      • acids
        • metal + x acid = metal x + hydrogen
          • e.g.  calcium + hydrochloric   acid = calcium chloride + hydrogen
    • reactivity series
      • concentration and volume of the acid and amount (moles) of element must be same
        • to make it fair
