Standard Reduction Potential of Cathodes and Anodes

Postby Rebecca Altshuler 1D » Tue Feb 26, 2019 9:27 am

I understand that to calculate the standard cell potential, we subtract the standard reduction potential of the oxidation half reaction from the standard reduction potential of the reduction half reaction. How do we find these values? Are they given?

I would assume these values would be given in any exam questions. In the book, it should be in the appendix tables or given in the question in order for you to actually solve it.
