1

Rank the four halogens in order of activity.

Fluorine > Chlorine > Bromine > Iodine

2

Rank the Reduction Potential of the four halogens.

Fluorine > Chlorine > Bromine > Iodine

3

Rank the metallic groups in order of activity.

G1 > G2 & Unstable transition metals > H2 and stable transition metals > Ag, Pt, Au

4

Describe the activity of G1 metals

React with cold water and acids, replacing hydrogen.
React with oxygen, forming oxides

5

Describe the activity of G2 metals & unstable transition metals.

React with steam (but not cold water) and acids, replacing hydrogen.
React with oxygen, forming oxides
Include Mg, Al, Mn, Zn, Cr, Fe, Cd

6

Describe the activity of stable transition metals.

Do not react with water.
React with acids, replacing hydrogen.
React with oxygen, forming oxides
Include Co, Ni, Sn, Pb

7

Describe the activity of H2 group metals

React with oxygen, forming oxides
Include H2, Sb, Bi, Cu, Hg

8

Describe the least active metals

activity unreactive, forming oxides only indirectly
Include Ag, Pt, Au

9

Standard reduction potential for Zn2+

-0.76V

10

Standard reduction potential for Cu2+

+0.34V

11

What does the activity of metals suggest?

The more active, the increased tendency for atoms to lose electrons and form ions
Reduction potential is smaller (or negative)

12

What does the activity of nonmetals suggest?

The more active, the increased tendency for atoms to gain electrons and form ions
Reduction potential is greater
