When a strip of copper metal( in the form of a wire) is released in the solution of silver nitrate, copper being a more reactive metal than silver displaces silver from its compound by forming copper nitrate with a shiny greyish white deposit of silver on the copper strip.

2AgNO3 + Cu ——-> Cu (NO3)2 + Ag

Wherein

Ag- Silver

AgNO3 - Silver Nitrate

Cu - Copper

Cu(N03) - Copper Nitrate
