What is the difference between displacement and double displacement reactions? Write equations for these reactions.

In a displacement reaction, one element takes the place of another in a compound.

For example,

Fe(s) + CuSO4(aq) ➝ FeSO4(aq) + Cu(s)

In a double displacement reaction, one component each of both the reactants get exchanged to form the products.

For example,

HCl(aq) + NaOH(aq) ➝ NaCl(aq) + H2O(l)
