Problem 6SAQ

The Zn/Zn2+ electrode has a standard electrode potential of Eo = - 0.76 V. How does the relative potential energy of an electron at the Zn/Zn2+ electrode compare to the potential energy of an electron at the standard hydrogen electrode?

a) An electron at the Zn/Zn2+ electrode has a higher potential energy than an electron at the standard hydrogen electrode.

b) An electron at the Zn/Zn2+ electrode has a lower potential energy than an electron at the standard hydrogen electrode.

c) An electron at the Zn/Z2+ electrode has the same potential energy as an electron at the standard hydrogen electrode.

d) Nothing can be concluded about the relative potential energy of an electron at the standard electrode potential.
