Question

When looking at a table of reduction potentials, the reduction of Cu + (aq) going to Cu (s) has a standard electrode potential of 0.52 V. What does that value mean?

a) The reduction of copper cation produces 0.52 V of electricity

b) The copper cation will spontaneously create copper solid

c) The reduction of Cu+ (aq) to Cu (s) is 0.52V greater than the reduction of H + (aq) to H2 (g).

d) Cu+ (aq) is going to be reduced because its electrode potential is positive
