2008 Practice Final Q3D

Postby Andy Liao 1B » Sat Mar 17, 2018 10:43 am


I understand that the Nernst Equation is being used to solve for E in part (D). However, I don't understand how the answer key arrived at 1/(1*10^-16) for Q. Can someone please explain? Also, I'm sorry. The image automatically flipped when I posted it

it is given that 1E-16 is the molarity of cu2+ in the question and since cu2+ is the reactant, you put its concentration in the denominator
