Extracting metals with charcoal- Learn Chemistry

This extraction experiment consists of two competition reactions. A metal oxide is reacted with charcoal. If the charcoal (carbon) is more reactive it will remove the oxygen from the metal oxide and leave a trace of metal in the reaction vessel. Start with an oxide of lead, then observe what happens to an oxide of copper.
