  • Copper is more reactive than silver. Hence displacement reaction occurs.
  • When copper coin is dipped in silver nitrate solution forming copper nitrate and silver metal.
  • A shining white deposit of silver metal is formed on copper coin. Hence, she saw a silver shine on the copper coin
  • Balanced equation:- 2AgNO3(ag)+Cu(s)→Cu(NO3)2(ag)+2Ag(s)
