## Calculate values for the galvanic cells in Exercise 38.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Two galvanic cells with two different chemical reactions are given. The value of E° for both the cells is to be calculated.

Concept introduction

The galvanic cell converts chemical energy into electrical energy while the electrolytic cell converts electrical energy into chemical energy.

The species at anode undergoes oxidation while the species at cathode undergoes reduction and the electrons generated at the anode are transferred through wire to the cathode.

### Explanation of Solution

The value of E°cell is calculated as 0.43V_ .

The reaction taking place at cathode is,

2IO3(aq)+6H+(aq)+4eI2(aq)+3H2O(l)E°red=+1.20V

The reaction taking place at anode is,

Fe2+(aq)Fe3+(aq)+eE°ox=0.77V

Multiply oxidation half reaction with the coefficient of 4 and both the reduction and oxidation half-reaction,

2IO3(aq)+6H+(aq)+4eI2(aq)+3H2<
