Au3+ + 3 e-→ Au E° = 1.50 V ↑ E → reduction → cathode
Cu2+ + e- → Cu+ E° = 0.34 ↓E → oxidation → anode
Au3+ + 3 e-→ Au
[Cu+ → Cu2+ + e-] x3
Consider the following galvanic cells:
For each galvanic cell, give the balanced cell equation and determine E°. Standard reduction potentials are found in Table 17‑1.
