    Hello, I am working on a lab and trying to verify my results with what the "expected" value should be. Please help me by answering the following question:

    Use standard electrode potentials to calculate the voltage of a cell using:

    a) Zn/Zn 2+ and Pb/Pb 2+ half cells.

    b) Zn/Zn 2+ and Cu/Cu 2+ half cells

    c) Cu/Cu 2+ and Pb/Pb 2+ half cells

    - Write the overall cell reaction of each.
    - Identify the anode and cathode of each.
    - Arrange the three metals in order of decreasing ease of oxidation(most easily oxidized metal first)
