### Re: 6L5 b.

You need to use platinum as a metal electrode for both sides since none of the products or reactants are conducting metal solids. I2 is a solid at the anode, but since it is a metal it doesn't count. At the cathode, there are only aqueous ions so you would also need the platinum electrode here to a...

Work is w=-P (pressure) (change in volume) . If the volume is increasing or decreasing change the sign accordingly. Also to convert J times atm to J multiply the value by 101.325 J/ L times atm.
