Homework problem #13 (Chapter 14)

Postby Michelle_Ahn_2N » Sun Feb 05, 2017 7:06 pm

For question
13-b) Ce^4+ (aq) + I^- (aq) -> I2(s) + Ce^3+(aq),
I know how to write the half -reactions and the balanced equations for above reactions, but I don't know how to write the cell diagram for this. What is the process in writing the cell diagram for that reaction and in general?

Thanks in advance for your help :) !

The process for writing a cell diagram is typically arranged, Anode||Cathode where || represents the salt bridge, | represents a change in phase, and a comma represents the same phase. Inert metallic component of an electrode is written on the outside of the cell diagram. Also, Reactant|Product for the Anode || Cathode. Overall, Reactant|Product || Reactant|Product , where the left hand side is the Anode and the right hand side is the cathode.
