# Question #e6bb7

##### 1 Answer

Bromide ion **will not be able to spontaneously reduce** silver ion.

#### Explanation:

In order to answer this question, we will need to write the reduction and oxidation half equations and to look up their corresponding standard reduction potentials:

Reduction reaction:

Oxidation reaction:

The sum of these two equations would give the redox reaction between bromide and silver ions.

Reduction:

Oxidation:

Redox:

Note that the redox potential is the sum of both half equations potentials:

Since the overall redox potential of this redox reaction is negative, therefore, the reaction is not spontaneous in the forward direction and thus, bromide ion **will not be able to spontaneously reduce** silver ion.
