Reducing power

Postby sarahtang4B » Wed Mar 13, 2019 3:30 pm

list the following with strongly reducing metal first: Fe, Ag, Au, An, Cu, Ni, Co, Al

Why does it go Al, then Zn, then Fe then Co? why doesn't Zn go after Cu?

The rule for reducing power is that the more negative the standard potential E is, the greater reducing power.
