COMPARISON OF ZINC & SILVER REDUCTION POTENTIALS<br />
Three Minutes After Immersion<br />
Silver crystals form on the copper strip immersed in silver nitrate (left) in a single replacement redox reaction . There is no reaction when the copper strip is immersed in zinc nitrate (right) because zinc has a lower reduction potential than sillver.
