Problem Details

Answer the following question based on the following half reactions: 

     HALF REACTIONS                                 E° (V)

     Fe3+(aq) + e → Fe2+(aq)                        + 0.769

     Cu+(aq) + e → Cu(s)                              + 0.16

     Ca2+(aq) + 2 e → Ca(s)                         – 2.76

     Li+(aq) + e → Li(s)                                  – 3.04
