Oxidation and Reduction (HL)
Consider the following standard electrode potentials.
Zn2+(aq) + 2e Zn(s)
EO = 0.76 V
Cl2(g) + 2e 2Cl(aq)
EO = +1.36 V
Mg2+(aq) + 2e Mg(s)
EO = 2.37 V

Standard Electrode Potentials
In an electrochemical cell, an electric potential is created between two
dissimilar metals. This potential is a measure of the energy per unit
charge which is available from the oxidation/reduction reactions to
drive the reac
