Write the formula for the strongest reducing agent and explain why
Zn2+ + 2e- <=> Zn -0.76V
Fe2+ + 2e- <=> Fe -0.44V
Cr2O72+ + 14H+ + 6e- <=> 2Cr3+ + 7H2O +1.33V

What do you think it is? And why?

strongest reducing agent is the species most likely to be oxidised. The equation with the most negative value is most likely to go in the oxidation direction therefore the strongest reducing agent would be Zn.
correct me if im wrong lol
