# (a) Interpretation: The minimum difference in the standard electrode potential needed to lower the concentration of metal M 1 to 2.00 × 10 − 4 M in a solution of 1.00 × 10 − 1 M is to be stated when M 2 is univalent and M 1 is divalent. 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. The Nernst equation is used to determine the electromotive force and the reduction potential of the half life cell.

Interpretation Introduction

## (a)Interpretation:The minimum difference in the standard electrode potential needed to lower the concentration of metal M1 to 2.00×10−4 M in a solution of 1.00×10−1 M is to be stated when M2 is univalent and M1 is divalent.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. The Nernst equation is used to determine the electromotive force and the reduction potential of the half life cell.
