Write the balanced net ionic equations for the reactions of the halogens with copper metal. The halogens are oxidizing agents and the copper metal is a reducing agent.
a) Bromine (Br2)+copper metal (Cu)

b) Iodine (I2) + copper metal (Cu)

Based on your observations and knowledge of the redox potential series table with the diagonal rule:
a) Is copper metal an oxidizing agent or reducing agent?
b) Does it react with br2?
Does it react with I2?
Based on your observations and the diagonal rule place Cu on a halogen table in its proper location specifically with regards to Br2 and I2, making sure the pair is complete (ex. (Cu^2+----(Cu)).
Construct a single reduction potential series table by combining the 2 smaller tables from parts 2 and 3 based on your explanation from last part for the location (Cu^2+)----(Cu)

someone please help me with this or at least show an example very similar to this.
