Eo’s are written as reductions. Zn+2 + 2e- Zn 2. Eo’s are listed for standard conditions. 1.0 M for solutions 1.0 atm. for gases T = 25 oC 3. A redox reaction is spontaneous in the forward direction if Ecell is positive. Zn + Cu+2 Zn+2 + Cu Ecell = 1.10 V (spontaneous) Zn+2 + Cu Zn + Cu+2 Ecell = -1.10 V (nonspontaneous) 4. All half-reactions are reversible. Any electrode can act as the anode or cathode depending on what it is coupled with. 5. Table N (attached) is an upside-down version of Table J, containing standard reduction potentials for half reactions. On Table N, the higher element is reduced and the lower element is oxidized, just the reverse of Table J. 6. Changing the stoichiometric coefficients of a half-cell does NOT change Eo. I2 + 2e- 2I- Eo = 0.53 V 2I2 + 4e- 4I- Eo = 0.53 V 7. Reversing the direction of a reaction changes the sign of the half-cell voltage. I2 + 2e- 2I- 0.53 V 2I- I2 + 2e- -0.53 V 8.
