    Well here is an acronym we use in school:
    Police - potassium
    Sergeant - sodium
    Charlie - calcium
    M - magnesium
    A - aluminium
    C- carbon
    Z - zinc
    I - iron
    N - nickel
    T - tin
    L - lead
    H- hydrogen
    Caught - copper
    Me - mercury
    Stealing - silver
    Gold - gold
    Plates - platinum

    So it basically reads Police Sergeant Charlie M A C Z I N T L Caught Me Stealing Gold Plates.
    hope it's useful!

    Hi! What exam board are you studying? If you are doing AQA and GCSE Chemistry, the reactivity series would be provided to you e.g.http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...DATA-SHEET.PDF
