Solutions of Cu2+ are blue and solutions of Ag+ are colourless. Use this information
to describe how you would measure the rate of the reaction:
2Ag(aq) + Cu(s) = 2Ag(s) + Cu2+ (aq)
monitor colour change (a spectroscope would give quantitative
measurements, the naked eye qualitative observations) as the reaction
proceeds forward, a blue colour should form as [Cu2+] increases.
