    The most stable (unreactive) metals are the precious metals : gold most unreactive, then silver than copper. The answer to your Q is therefore silver.

    To remember the reactivity series of metals use this mnemonic.

    PLEASE potassium

    SEND sodium

    CHARLIE's Calcium

    MONKEYS Magnesium

    AND Aluminium

    Zebras Zinc

    In Iron

    Lead Lead

    CAGES Copper

    SECURELY SILVER

    GATED Gold.

    The top ones are the most reactive (in order).

    Hope this helps.

    Sodium = most reactive

    Iron = medium reactive

    Silver = least reactive

    To tell what order things are reactive in, look at a thing called the reactivity series. Its basically a list of metals in order of how reactive they are in all situations. Follow the link below.

    Now one tip of how to tell if something is reactive is how shiny it is. Gold, silver, copper... are all very shiny metals. Now why is that? Its because they're not reactive; they dont react to oxygen in the air and so the surface still remains pure/non-corroded. Take a piece of sodium, and it will turn dull in a few minutes, because the outside layer corrodes quickly to oxygen in the air, so a rusty outside layer forms.

    Silver, but, it's not unreactive, it's simply one of the precious metals, all of which have low reactivity.

    silver is the answer

    to check that i'm not lying look at whatever good jewellry you own. is it made of silver? silver is used for jewellry because it is unreactive and so won't harm your skin or explode when you go in the shower.

    Silver is relatively unreactive.

    The answer is silver because It has the highest electrical conductivity of all metals, even higher than copper, but its greater cost has prevented it from being widely used in place of copper for electrical purposes.

    sodium is the most reactive. silver's the answer. Check wikipedia.
