standard cell potential

Postby marcus lin 1E » Sun Mar 03, 2019 2:44 pm

If we're only given the standard cell potential of reduction, how do we find the standard cell potential of oxidation?

You just flip the sign.

The oxidation reaction is simply the reverse of the reduction reaction, so its potential is the flipped reduction potential.
