According to the data booklet Cu(NO3)2 and Sn(s) are spontaneous Cu2+ being a strong reducing agent and Sn(s) being a strong oxidizing agent
but according this lab:
According to this there was no reaction between Cu(NO3)2 and Sn(s)
Is it because there isnt much of a potential difference between the two?
and thank you in advance
I didn't look at the site but there is a lot of misinformation floating around out there. #1, Sn is a reducing agent, not an oxidizing agent. #2, Sn + Cu^+2 ==> Sn^+2 + Cu will occur spontaneously. You can take that to the bank.
