undefined video tutorial00:09:30
The cell in which the following reactions occurs: 2Fe3+ (aq) + 2I– (aq) —> 2Fe2+ (aq) +I2 (s) has E°cell=0.236 V at 298 K. Calculate the standard Gibbs energy and the equilibrium constant of the cell reaction.
For the reaction
`2AgCl (s) + H_2 (g) ("1 atm") -> 2Ag (s) + 2H^(+) (0.1 M) + 2Cl^(-) (0.1 M)`
`triangleG^0 = -43600 J at 25^@ C`
Calculate the e.m.f. of the cell
`[log 10^(-n) = -n]`
Following reactions occur at cathode during the electrolysis of aqueous silver chloride solution :
`Ag^+(aq)+e^(-)rarrAg(s)" "" "" "E^@=+0.80V`
`H^+(aq)+e^(-)rarr1/2H_2(g)" "" "" " E^@=0.00V`
On the basis of their standard reduction electrode potential (E°) values, which reaction is feasible at the cathode and why ?
