Solutions

Chapter 22, Problem 22.8QAP
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The theoretical potential of the following cell and the spontaneity of the following reaction have to be found:

Bi|BiO+(0.0300 M),H+(0.100 M)||I-(0.100 M), AgI(sat'd)|Ag

Concept introduction:

The electrode potential of the cell is the potential difference induced by the metal electrode and the solution. The electrode potential is calculated by the using the Nernst equation.

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The theoretical potential of the following cell and the spontaneity of the following reaction have to be found:

Zn|Zn2+(5.75×104 M)||Fe(CN)64(5.50×102 M),Fe(CN)63(6.75×102 M)|Pt

Concept introduction:

The induced potential difference by the metal electrode and the solution in the cell is called the theoretical electrode potential of the cell. The Nernst equation is used for the calculation of electrode potential.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

The theoretical potential of the following cell and the spontaneity of the following reaction have to be found:

Pt,H2(0.200 atm)|HCl(8.25×10-4 M),AgCl(sat'd)|Ag

Concept introduction:

The theoretical electrode potential of the cell may be defined as the potential difference induced by the metal electrode and the solution in the cell. The electrode potential is calculated by the Nernst equation.
