Nickel is more reactive.
Put a piece of nickel into copper(II) sulphate solution. Displacement occurs to give green nickel(II) ion and reddish brown copper metal.
Put separately each of a piece of nickel and a piece of copper into 2 cm3 of dilute hydrochloric acid. Nickel reacts slowly with dilute hydrochloric to give colourless bubbles of hydrogen, but copper gives no reaction.
The products are zinc oxide and copper.
lithium oxide and calcium
iron(III) oxide and lead
