I can figure out the value of 'n' in simple equations like Fe³⁺ + e⁻ → Fe²⁺ (which would be n=1 here.)
But in equations like 2Cu⁺→ Cu²⁺ + Cu, I can't figure it out. I assumed the value of n would be 2 here as two electrons are involved in the disproportionation reaction, but my book says n=1 here. Can anyone help me understand what is the value of 'n' in this equation? Thank you.
