For each reaction that is spontaneous under standard conditions (K>1), write a cell diagram, determine the standard cell potential, and calculate deltaG for the reaction:
For part a) 2NO3-(aq) + 8H+(aq) + 6Hg(l) = 2Hg2^2+(aq) +2NO(g) + 2H2O(l) why does the answer in the textbook use O(g) in the cell diagram and not NO(g)?
cell diagram: Hg(l) | Hg2^2+(aq) || NO3-(aq), H+(aq) | O(g) | Pt(s)

It could just be a typo.
