Reducing/Oxidizing Agent Strength from Lab Results – $Sn$/$Ag$

CHEM-PWK0PP

In a laboratory, you set up the following redox reaction.

$$2\textrm{Ag} + \textrm{SnBr}_2 \rightarrow \textrm{Sn} + 2\textrm{AgBr}$$

However, you discover that no reaction spontaneously occurs.

Which of the following statements are true? Select ALL that apply.

A

$\textrm{Ag}$ is a stronger reducing agent than $\textrm{Sn}$.

B

$\textrm{Ag}^+$ is a stronger oxidizing agent than $\textrm{Sn}^{2+}$.

C

The reduction potential for $\textrm{Ag}^+$ is more positive than the reduction potential for $\textrm{Sn}^{2+}$.

D

The reverse reaction will be non-spontaneous.

E

None of the above.
