Metals reaction with water.
When metals react with water they form positive ions, they can be ordered by how fast, vigorous the reaction is in the reactivity series.
A more reactive metal will displace a less reactive metal from a non-metal, this is known as displacement.
placing a magnesium ribbon in copper sulfate, the magnesium will react with the sulfate to form magnesium sulfate plus copper.
Work out an order of reactivity based on reactions
