But as per the reactivity series of metals silver and gold lie below copper and gold and silver is less reactive than copper,then why silver is used to store copper nitrate solution??

Expert Answer:

Dear student
Since silver is less reactive than copper, it will not displace the copper from salt solution. Therefore, it is safe to store copper sulphate solution in silver  vessel
