# Using the Standard Electrode Potentials Given in the Table 8.1, Predict If the Reaction Between the Following is Feasible Fe3+ (Aq) and Cu(S) - Chemistry

Using the standard electrode potentials given in the Table 8.1, predict if the reaction between the following is feasible

Fe3+ (aq) and Cu(s)

#### Solution

The possible reaction between Fe_((aq))^(3+) and Cu_((s)) is given by,

2Fe_((aq))^(3+) + Cu_((s)) -> 2Fe_((s))^(2+) + Cu_((aq))^(2+)

E° positive for the overall reaction is positive. Hence, the reaction between Fe_((aq))^(3+) and Cu_((s)) is feasible.
