(a) Interpretation: The halide which will form first and the potential at which it will form along with the type of the cell is to be stated. Concept introduction: The Nernst equation can calculate the total voltage of an electrochemical cell. It can also be used to calculate the reduction potential of half cell in an electrochemical cell.
