**(a)**

Interpretation Introduction

**Interpretation: **The thermodynamic potential of the cell should be determined.

**Concept Introduction:**The electrode potential of the cell is defined as the potential of cell consisting of two electrodes. Therefore at anode the oxidation occurs and at cathode reduction occurs.

Expert Solution

The thermodynamic potential of the cell is

The solution is

The expression for electrode potential is:

Here, standard electrode potential is

The electrode potential of the cell is equal to the difference between electrode potential of cathode and electrode potential of anode.

Here, the electrode potential of cathode is

The overall reaction is:

Write the reaction at cathode.

The reaction at anode is:

The expression for the electrode potential of cathode is:

The expression for the electrode potential of anode is:

Substitute
