14.41 (b)

Postby Hannah Guo 3D » Mon Feb 19, 2018 4:39 pm

When calculating the concentration of reactants and products in order to get Q for the reaction in which H+ --> H2, do we need to consider the coefficient of the H+? I find it a bit confusing because we consider the coefficient of H+ when calculating the Q in 14.39 (b), but not in 14.41(b).

Thank you!

I had a similar problem when calculating this problem I got n=2 because the balanced equation is H2=2H+ +2e but the solution manual said n=1

Which question are you referring to? I feel like I had a similar problem.
