Worksheet: Standard Reduction Potential
In this worksheet, we will practice using standard reduction potentials to identify the reduction and oxidation reactions in an electrochemical process.
Using the standard electrode potentials shown in the table, determine which of the following ions is the strongest oxidizing agent in acidic aqueous solutions.
|Standard Electrode Potential,|
- AChromium(III) ions
- BManganese(II) ions
- CTitanium dioxide, which contains titanium(IV)
- DPermanganate ions, which contain manganese(VII)
- EDichromate ions, which contain chromium(VI)
Iron, the major reactive component of steel, has a standard reduction potential of V. Using the standard electrode potentials shown in the table, determine which of the following metals could be used as a sacrificial anode in the cathodic protection of an underground steel storage tank.
