    Reduction potential is measured in volts (V), millivolts (mV), or Eh (1 Eh = 1 mV). Because the absolute potentials are difficult to accurately measure, reduction potentials are defined relative to the standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) which is arbitrarily given a potential of 0.00 volts. Standard reduction potential (E0), is ...
