HW 14.15 C

Postby Ashley Van Belle 2B » Sun Feb 12, 2017 11:59 pm

Write the half-reactions and devise a cell diagram for Cd(s) + 2Ni(OH)3(s) --> Cd(OH)2(s) + 2Ni(OH)2(s)

The answer for the cell diagram is Cd(s)|Cd(OH)2(s)|KOH(aq)||Ni(OH)3(s)|Ni(OH)2(s)|Ni(s)

Where do you get the KOH from? And the Ni(s)?

The Ni(s) are used as the conducting electrode and KOH comes from the balancing of the anode.
