the type of reaction in a voltaic cell is best described as
1.spontaneous oxidation reaction only
2.nonspontaneous oxidation reaction only
3.spontaneous oxidation-reduction reaction
4.nonspontaneous oxidation-reduction reaction
i know its spontaneous, but what else?
You may not have oxidation without having reduction at the same time.
The answer is 3
Best guess is spontaneous oxidation
