# Reducing/Oxidizing Agent Strength from Experimental Results

CHEM-7VJQGH

Given the following laboratory observations:

$$\textrm{Cd} + \textrm{NiBr}_2 \rightarrow \textrm{Ni} + \textrm{CdBr}_2$$
$$\textrm{Ni} + \textrm{CdBr}_2 \rightarrow \textrm{ No Reaction}$$

Which of the following statements are NOT true?

Select ALL that apply.

A

$\textrm{Ni}$ is a stronger reducing agent than $\textrm{Cd}$.

B

$\textrm{Cd}$ is a stronger reducing agent than $\textrm{Ni}$.

C

$\textrm{Cd}^{2+}$ is a stronger oxidizing agent than $\textrm{Ni}^{2+}$.

D

The reduction potential of $\textrm{Ni}^{2+}$ is greater than the reduction potential of $\textrm{Cd}^{2+}$.

E

None of the above.
