2018 Midterm Question 5A

Postby Tiffany Wu 1K » Mon Feb 13, 2017 9:34 pm

Question: A standard electrochemical cell is made by placing a silver electrode into a 1.0 M Ag+ solution and a cadmium electrode into a 1.0 M Cd2+ solution.
What is the redox reaction and what is the maximum potential produced by this cell?

I confused how to figure out whether Ag or Cd is being reduced or oxidized.

find standard reduction potential and use Ecathode -Eanode to calculate the cell potential, remember you want the final answer to be positive.
