Homework Help: E0 for Cu+ => Cu2+ + 1e- is -0,15V

  1. Jul 17, 2009 #1
    Given E[tex]^{0}[/tex]=0,52V for

    Cu[tex]^{+}[/tex](aq) + e[tex]^{-}[/tex] --> Cu(s)

    Calculate E[tex]^{0}[/tex] for the following reaction at 25ºC, 1atm.

    2Cu[tex]^{+}[/tex](aq) --> Cu[tex]^{2+}[/tex](aq) + Cu(s)

    Any ideas?

    Is that all the data you're given? Don't you need the E[tex]^{0}[/tex] for Cu+ => Cu2+?

    While doing these exercises we can check the standart potential reduction table.

    E0 for Cu+ => Cu2+ + 1e- is -0,15V

    What would you do then?
