Problem Details

Rank the following half reactions (1-5) in order of oxidizing ability, from strongest to weakest.

_______   K → K+ + e                                 E° = + 2.93 V 

_______   F2 + 2 e → 2 F                          E° = + 3.0 V

________  2 H2O + 2 e → H2 + 2 OH       E° = – 0.83 V 

________  Ag → Ag+ + e–                            E° = – 0.80 V 

________  Ni2+ + 2 e → Ni                         E° = – 0.23 V
