# What are some examples of single replacement reactions?

Apr 16, 2014

Some examples of single replacement reactions would include

$Z n + {H}_{2} S {O}_{4} \to Z n S {O}_{4} + {H}_{2}$

Zinc metal reacting in sulfuric acid to release hydrogen gas.

$2 K B r + C {l}_{2} \to 2 K C l + B {r}_{2}$

The reaction between potassium bromide and chlorine gas.

In both examples the reaction follows the basic concept of

$A B + C \to A C + B$
