Solution

  • When one compound of higher reactivity displaces another compound of low reactivity in a chemical reaction it is said to be a displacement reaction.
  • As the name suggests, in displacement reaction one compound takes place of the other one.
  • Displacement reaction: AB+CAC+B
  • For example: 2NaBr(aq)+Cl2(aq)2NaCl(aq)+Br2(aq)

Therefore, when an element displaces another element from its compound, a displacement reaction occurs.
