For homework problem 6M.7 part a, how do you know which standard reduction potential you should use for Cr? When Cr loses 2 e-, the standard reduction potential is -0.91, but when it loses 3 e-, it is -0.74. The one I use will determine if Cr is a stronger reducing agent than Zn.
I am also confused about this. For reference, here is the question: Arrange the following metals in order of increasing strength as reducing agents for species in aqueous solution: (a) Cu, Zn, Cr, Fe; (b) Li, Na, K, Mg; (c) U, V, Ti, Al; (d) Ni, Sn, Au, Ag.
A lot of people have also been asking similar questions and it seems like no one really knows so either Dr Lavelle will provide us with the information on the test or I’m just going to try to see if there is a pattern to which one to use from all the questions and answer key in the textbook
