    what does that mean:

    standard electrode potentials apply to aq equilibria-does that mean all reactants and products have to be aq or does it only have too contain one which is aq.????

    Hmmm, could you supply the full quote ?

    All electrode potentials are measured relative to the standard hydrogen electrode.

    In the SHE hydrogen gas is being used.

    So, I believe that your statement is flawed.

    No not all the species have to be in the aqueous phase. Eg the cu/cu2+ electrode which will be a solid copper electrode and a solution of cu2+, eg cuso4
