Solution

Reactivity series

  • The arrangement of metals in descending order of their reactivities is referred to as the "metal reactivity series," sometimes known as the "activity series."
  • To determine if a metal can displace another in a single displacement reaction, one can use the information offered by the reactivity series.
  • It can also be used to find out reactivity of metals toward water and acids.

Metals that do not react with dilute hydrochloric acid

  • Metals that do not react with dilute Hydrochloric acidHCl are copper, silver, gold, and mercury.
  • It is because they come after hydrogen in the activity series.
  • So, these metals can't replace hydrogen from hydrochloric acid.
