Hw Problem 6M.1

Postby aphung1E » Tue Mar 03, 2020 2:07 pm

6M.1 A student was given a standard Cu(s)/Cu21(aq) half-cell and another half-cell containing an unknown metal M in 1.00 m M(NO3)2(aq) and formed the cell M(s)|M1(aq)|Cu21(aq)|Cu(s). The cell potential was found to be 20.689 V. What is the value of Energy potenial (M21/M)?

In this problem, why are we finding the potential for the cathode even though we are given the E of the cathode?

We are finding the cell potential of the anode since M is being oxidized in this reaction.
