Cell Potentials

Postby stephanieyang_3F » Tue Feb 07, 2017 9:03 pm

How does the value of a standard cell potential relate to its reducing/oxidizing strength?

The more negative the standard cell potential is, the stronger its reducing strength and and the more positive, the stronger its oxidizing strength is.

Hope that helps :)

Hi Maya! Yes it makes sense but I'm just having a hard time trying to understand it.. Do you mind explaining it with an example? Thank you so much!
