  • The liquid solution that was heated up on a hot plate contained Zinc powder (Zn2+) and Potassium hydroxide (K+ and OH-).
  • Composition Change of Silver Penny
  • The penny was placed in the liquid solution on the hot plate. The atoms started to heat up and move around the jar more frequently.

  • The Zinc atoms reacted with the Copper atoms of the penny. They stuck to the outside of the penny, and coated it with a silver color.

  • The Zinc atoms in the core of the penny moved to the outside coating of the penny. This provided a layer of Zinc atoms surrounding Copper atoms.

  • The Zinc atoms and Copper atoms mixed together when the penny was placed in a flame forming an alloy. The alloy that was formed was brass which has a gold color.
