Question

Using the standard electrode potentials given in the Table 8.1, predict if the reaction between the following is feasible:

Ag+(aq) and Cu(s)

Solution

The possible reaction between `Ag_((aq))^+ + Cu_((s))` is given by,

`2Ag_((aq))^+ + Cu_(s) -> 2Ag_((s)) + Cu_((aq))^(2+)`

E° positive for the overall reaction is positive. Hence, the reaction between `Ag_((aq))^+` and `Cu_((s))` is feasible.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
