Standard Reduction Potential

Postby Rebecca Altshuler 1D » Tue Feb 26, 2019 3:19 pm

When calculating for the Eo of a cell do we add the Eo of each half reaction with the corresponding sign the same way we did in class? Someone mentioned during review that this was incorrect because E is not a state function.

For half reactions you might have to change the sign if you need to reverse the reaction depending on whether the reaction should be oxidized or reduced

Are we allowed to sum E?
