Expert Answer:

When a strip of lead metal is placed in a solution of copper chloride, then lead chloride solution and copper metal are formed.

The green colour of copper chloride fades and the solution becomes colourless. A red brown coating of copper metal is deposited on the lead strip. Lead is more reactive than copper hence it is able to displace it from its solution.

Pb(s) + CuCl2(aq) → PbCl2(aq) + Cu(s)
