M manish

    The E^{\ominus }(M^{2+}/M) value for metal depends on-

  • Sublimation energy
  • Ionisation energy
  • Hydration energy

Copper has a high value of atomisation enthalpy and low hydration energy. Thus, as a result, the overall effect is  E^{\ominus }(M^{2+}/M) for copper is positive.
