Largest E Cell

How do you get the largest E cell? Standard reduction potentials are given for a set of species.

You find the largest E Cell by subtracting the E of the molecule with the highest oxidizing power (high reduction potential; most positive; in the cathode) by the E of the molecule with the highest reducing power (high oxidation potential; most negative; in the anode).

You would subtract the most positive reduction potential from the most negative reduction potential.
