Largest E°cell question test #2

Postby Hailey Boehm 2H » Tue Mar 12, 2019 3:00 pm

How do you figure out the largest E°cell on test #2? I though that you would have to pick the greatest reducer and weakest oxidizer to get the largest E°cell but I got the question wrong. thanks!

You would have to pick is the biggest reducing agent and the biggest oxidizing agent.

The way to determine which species is the best reducing agent is by looking at the reduction potentials. Good reducing agents have low reduction potentials, meaning that they get oxidized and give up their electrons. On the other hand, good oxidizing agents have high reduction potentials, meaning that they are more likely to be reduced and accept electrons.

You would choose the largest reducing agent as well as the largest oxidizing agent

One would choose the largest reducing agent and the largest oxidizing agent.
