Expert Answer

Step 1

Dear student, since we provide one answer in a thread, we are answering number 2. Kindly re-post number 3 in another thread.

The standard reduction potentials of the half electrodes ( from a standard data table) is :

Zn2+/Zn = -0.76 V

Ag+/Ag = 0.80 V

 

 

Step 2

The above values shows that Ag+ has a higher tendency of reduction than Zn2+.

Thus, silver electrode serves as cathode, since reduction takes place at cathode and zinc electrode serves as anode.

 

Step 3

The standard value of cell potent...
