Best Answer

Since iron is a more active metal than copper, the iron would replace the copper in the copper sulfate, forming iron sulfate, and releasing elemental copper. The copper will not shape itself into a copper vessel, so eventually, the iron sulfate would leak out of the iron vessel, and eventually, if there is enough copper sulfate, the iron vessel will cease to exist.
