the standard reduction potential of cu2+/cu and cu2+/cu+ is 0.337 and 0.153V respectively. what is the standard electrode potential of cu+/cu half cell ??

By using LATIMER DIAGRAM we get the answer .... please see the picture ..there you get the answer clearly

Cu2+ + 2e gives Cu -----0.337
Cu2+ 1e gives Cu+----0.153
So. Cu+ +1e gives Cu is 2(0.337)-0.153=0.521
