    It's just the difference between the electrode potentials of the two half cells

    ahhh yes, so I did

    2Cii) Work out the moles of thiosulphate: 0.0205 * 0.2

    Using the equations:

    mol thiosulphate/2 = moles of iodine
    moles of iodine * 2 = moles of copper

    Hence moles of thiosulphate = moles of copper ions.

    To find the total moles of copper ions multiply by 10 to scale up to the 250ml solution.

    Then moles of copper ==> mass of copper

    Then percentage = 100 * mass of copper/mass of sample
