oxidizing power

How would you rank different reactions' oxidizing power based on their reduction potentials?

The higher their reducing potentials, the stronger their oxidizing power.

The reduction potential is how likely the substance is going to be reduced, so if the reduction potential is greater it also means that it is more likely to oxidize the other substance.
