Worksheet: Electrochemical Cell Potential
In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the potential of an electrochemical cell from the half-cell potentials of the anode and cathode.
The standard reduction potentials for oxygen gas and two cobalt(III) complexes are shown in the table.
|Standard Electrode Potential,|
Based on the cell potentials, which of the two complexes, and , can be oxidized to the corresponding cobalt(III) complex by oxygen? Assume that all reactions take place under standard conditions.

- B but not
- C but not
- DNeither nor
