    Single Displacement reaction is when there is an element and a compound in the reactants and in the product the element switches with one of the elements in the compound ex AB + C = AC+B

    For example...2K (s) + CuSO4 (aq) ---> K2SO4 (aq) + Cu (s)

    So this means 2 potassium + copper sulfuroxide which changes to potassium sulfuroxide +copper. Is this correct?
