Chemical Reactions with Aluminum Foil

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the solution, here!

We had a lab using Cu(II) Chloride dihydrate, water and Aluminum foil. we put the Cu(II) in water, stirred and then crumpled the foil and dropped in solution. We are supposed to describe any additional experiment we would do to prove our hypothesis. (The aluminum pulled the copper solids out of the solution and the aluminum disolved into liquid solution.) Could I use copper acetate monohydrate or copper carbonate to get the same results? Is there another way to prove what happened?

Thanks.
