14.29 States of redox couples

Postby Christina Cen 2J » Thu Feb 22, 2018 9:54 pm

For 29, how do we know which elements are aqueous, solid, etc. when we write the cell diagram?

Items with a charge are usually aqueous, the metals are solid, while the diatomic molecules and O3 are gaseous. Basically, their location on the periodic table dictates their natural state if they are neutral.

Also I am assuming standard temperature and pressure.

To determine the states of the molecules in the cell diagram, you can also look at Appendix 2B for the cell potential values. All the half reactions will be listed there with the states of each substance.
