Chemical reactivity lists
“How can we determine the reactivity of an element?”
We all know elements can react with one another. However, how can we quantify the level of an element? Well, let’s think about it. We are aware of the fact that we can use a tool called Empiricism to organize external information. And we know that external information can include overseeing Chemical reactions. So what if we were to observe which elements reacted with which ion, and then wrote down the result? This is the root behind Chemical reactivity lists. What makes these lists so interested is that they can be organized linearly, Meaning that if you can make a vertical list of all of the elements, than they would be able to react with everything below their position, and be unable to react with everything above it, therefore allowing for future predictions.
