### 6N.7

Is there some relationship between Ecell and E^ocell that would help you to determine which element in the problem would be the product or which would be the reactant. I did everything correctly, however, I just don't understand how you would know which is which when determining Q.

### Re: 6N.7

Based off of the problem, you already know the oxidation and reduction reactions. One way to figure out which elements are products/reactants is to combine the half-reactions to write out the whole reaction and determine it from there.

Return to “Appications of the Nernst Equation (e.g., Concentration Cells, Non-Standard Cell Potentials, Calculating Equilibrium Constants and pH)”
