1. I think you have made a typo. It makes the difference between a half reaction and a complete reaction. Note that the charges don't balance. I see +4 on the left and +2 on the right.
I THINK what you meant to type is
2Cu^+(aq) ==> Cu^2+ + Cu(s)

2. That's actually word for word from the problem. That's why I've been having so much difficulty with it. The answers were given as 0.37 V, -36 kJ, and k = 2x10^6. I just want to understand how it's possible.

The red-ox reaction is MgSO4+2K yields K2 SO4+Mg. I thought the oxidation reaction is 2 k yields K2(subscript) + e^-2. I said the reduction half reaction was Mg+e- yields Mg. Are these correct? Thanks for checking.
