Metals are very important to us.  They are used extensively in many different areas.  Construction relies heavily on metals.  Your car is metal.  The parts inside your computer are made with metal.  As you can see they are everywhere.  If you happen to study the periodic table of elements, you will notice that many of the elements are metals.  Advisors from scienceproject.com developed the following project to test and increase your knowledge of metals.

Activities of Metals


Many metals react with other chemicals; however, the rate of reaction varies among different metals. Some metals react with water, some metals react with acids, and finally some other metals are inactive and do not cause any reaction with acids.

Variations in activity of metals have many industrial applications. Some use such variations to extract valuable metals such as silver from waste water of film development process. Some use variations in metals activity to do plating without using electricity.

How do we know which metals are more active and which one are less active?

Project description:
In this project you will test and rank several metals based on their chemical activity.
