1 Why are e-s spontaneously transferred from Fe to Cu 2+ ? Cu 2+ (aq) + Fe (s) Cu (s) + Fe 2+ (aq) Section 11.2 Spontaneous E Fe High lying occupied orbitals Donor orbital Reducing Agent Cu 2+ Low lying unfilled orbitals Acceptor orbital Oxidizing Why aren’t e-s spontaneously transferred from Cu to Fe 2+ ? Cu 2+ + Fe Cu + Fe 2+ X Section 11.2 Nonspontaneous Cu Donor orbital Low lying Fe 2+ E Acceptor orbital High lying E Donor orbital Acceptor orbital Spontaneous High lying, filled Low lying, empty red.ag. Great ox.ag. Acceptor orbital Donor orbital E High lying, empty Low lying, filled Nonspontaneous Horrible Section 11.2 Mg(s) + Pb 2+ (aq) Mg 2+ (aq) + Pb(s) The following reaction is spontaneous. Which species is being oxidized? ( Mg,Pb 2+ ,Mg 2+ ,Pb ) Which species is the oxidizing agent? ( Mg,Pb 2+ ,Mg 2+ ,Pb ) Section 11.2 E Before a b Mg(s) + Pb 2+ (aq) Mg 2+ (aq) + Pb(s) The following reaction is spontaneous. After c d In which box ( a or b ) are the electrons before the reaction occurs? Which orbital represents Mg 2+ ( a , b , c or d ). Which orbital represents Pb ( a , b , c or d ).
