Standard Potentials

Postby KeiannaPineda1B » Thu Mar 05, 2020 11:22 pm

What are the standard potential values based off?

They are based on the reaction with the standard hydrogen electrode.

Is that like...super important to know, or just a detail?

I don't think that knowing this is super important or essential, but it is good to know. The standard reduction potentials are all based on reactions with the standard hydrogen electrode as a common reference point.

standard potentials is the tendency for a chemical species to be reduced, and is measured in volts at standard conditions. The more positive the potential is the more likely it will be reduced.
