Shortcut Trick to Learn Metal Reactivity Series – Chemistry Mnemonic

Trick to Learn Metal Reactivity Series: When it comes to Chemistry, the Metal Reactivity Series is fundamental & very important that every science student must be aware of and memorize very well. Because without knowing the elements, you’re missing out on the foundation required to learn the rest of what chemistry has to offer. Trick to Learn Metal Reactivity Series will help you in upcoming NEET, JEE, Class 12, Class 11, Medical and Engineering Exams.

Trick to Learn Metal Reactivity Series

What is the Reactivity Series?

The reactivity series of metals, also known as the activity series, refers to the arrangement of metals in the descending order of their reactivities.

Long Tabular Form of the Reactivity Series

The reactivities of metals are tabulated below (in the descending order) along with their corresponding ions. Note that the metals in Red react with cold water, those in Orange cannot react with cold water but can react with acids, and those in Blue only react with some strong oxidizing acids.

Reactivity Series of Metals Ions Formed
Caesium Cs+
Francium Fr+
Rubidium Rb+
Potassium K+
Sodium Na+
Lithium Li+
Barium Ba2+
Radium Ra2+
Strontium Sr2+
Calcium Ca2+
Magnesium Mg2+
Beryllium Be2+
Aluminium Al3+
Titanium Ti4+
Manganese Mn2+
Zinc Zn2+
Chromium Cr3+
Iron Fe3+
Cadmium Cd2+
Cobalt Co2+
Nickel Ni2+
Tin Sn2+
Lead Pb2+
Hydrogen H+ (Non-Metal, Reference for Comparison)
Antimony Sb3+
Bismuth Bi3+
Copper Cu2+
Tungsten W3+
Mercury Hg2+
Silver Ag+
Platinum Pt4+
Gold Au3+

Despite being a non-metal, hydrogen is often included in the reactivity series since it helps compare the reactivities of the metals. The metals placed above hydrogen in the series can displace it from acids such as HCl and H2SO4 (since they are more reactive).
