When copper metal is placed in a solution of zinc nitrate, will a reaction occur? If so, what is the balanced equation for the reaction?
A)Yes.Cu(s) + Zn(NO3)2(aq)  Cu(NO3)2(aq) + Zn(s)
B)Yes.Cu(s) + Zn(NO3)2(aq)  CuNO3(aq) + ZnNO3(aq)
C)No reaction will occur.
D)Yes.Cu(s) + Zn2NO3(aq)  CuNO3(aq) + Zn(aq)
E)Yes.Cu(s) + Zn2NO3(aq)  CuNO3(aq) + 2Zn(aq)
