Problem: Of the following metals, which ions are most easily reduced? Use the above table to answer the question.A) magnesiumB) leadC) copperD) sodium

FREE Expert Solution

Consult a reduction potential table:

Recall the mnemonic for redox reactions:

Loss Electrons  Oxidation  Reducing Agent

Gain Electrons  Reduction  Oxidizing Agent


This means the element that gains electrons/reduced is the oxidizing agent while the element that loses electrons/oxidized is the reducing agent.
