Cu3+ + 2e-Cu+                       E1= 1.128V 

Cu+→ Cu2+ + e-                    E2= - 0.15V

Given the following half-reactions and their respective standard reduction potentials 

1.) Cu3+ + 2e- ---> Cu+....E1= 1.128V 

2.) Cu2+ + e- ---> Cu+....E2=0.15V 

3.) Cu2+ + 2e- ---> Cu(s)....E3=0.34V 

4.) Cu3+ + 2e- ---> Cu+....E4=0.52V 

calculate the standard reduction potential for the reduction half-reaction of Cu(III) to Cu(II). 

Cu3+ + e- ---> Cu2+ E= ? V
