question 55 chapter 14

Postby Parsia Vazirnia 2L » Tue Feb 07, 2017 10:25 pm

Hi, Im a bit confused because the values given in question 55 and what is given in the solution manual are not consistent. In the book, it is given that the standard potential is -0.42 volts for water but in the solutions manual it is written that the standard potential is -0.83V. Which value did you guys use?

Hi,

For the half-reaction
At pH = 7,
Under standard conditions,

Note that pH = 7 is not under standard conditions.

Hope this helps!
