Electrochem Review session problem 14.47

Postby Carlos Gonzales 1H » Sun Mar 11, 2018 4:12 pm

For today's review session, one example given was 14.47. In the solution manual the answer to this problem for part a is Q=10^6, but when calculating for Q, I got the answer to be 3.3x10^6. Is this an error in the manual or is the number so big that the 3.3 is insignificant?

Following the work in the solutions manual, Q = 3.3 x 106, so technically your answer is the most accurate. I think the magnitude of Q is the most important point in the answer so that's why the solution manual says Q = 106.

I think it's out of the sig figs problem.
