(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Various questions based on the displacement of one ion from its solution by other are to be answered and the E° , ΔG° and K for the possible reaction are to be calculated.

Concept introduction:

The relationship between reduction potential and standard reduction potential value and activities of species present in an electrochemical cell at a given temperature is given by the Nernst equation.

The value of Ecell is calculated using Nernst formula,

E=E°(RTnF)ln(Q)

At room temperature the above equation is specifies as,

E=E°(0.0591n)log(Q)

The relationship between cell potential and Gibbs free energy change is given by the formula,

ΔG°=nFE°cell

To determine: The reaction, if any, when crystals of I2 are added to solution of NaCl .
