1 Permanganate is a powerful oxidizing agent. This reduction reaction will cause all the others below it to reverse and run as oxidations to produce a decrease in the free energy. 2 Alkali metals are powerful reducing agents. These reduction reactions reverse, run as oxidations, and cause all the others above them to run as reductions to produce a decrease in the free energy. Since the standard reduction potential is negative, the standard oxidation potential is positive.

Determining G o and K from measurements of the standard cell potential, E o cell G o = - nFE o Recall from Ch 18 that G o = - RT ln(K) Combine these two equations -nFE o = -RT ln(K) E o = (RT/nF) ln(K) Substitute values for R, F, T = 298 K, and convert to base 10 logs. E o cell = (0.0592 V/n) log (K) 6 Practice on problems 19.9, p. 945 E o cell = (0.0592 V/n) log (K) Determine the equilibrium constants for the following reactions from the standard reduction potentials in Table 19.1.
