### 6N.3c

Predict the potential of:

Pt(s)|Cl2(g, 250 Torr)|HCl (aq, 1.0 mol/L)‖HCl (aq, 0.85 mol/L)|H2(g, 125 Torr)|Pt(s)

How do I find Q for this question when the gases are in units of Torr and the aqueous ions are in units of mol/L?

You can convert torr to atm by dividing the torr values by 760. The units will then cancel out as you solve the equation.

after this do you implement the pressures into the Q equation? I keep getting the wrong overall answer so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Yes, you would plug in the converted values in the Q equation. So, Q = ((250/760)*(125/760))/((1^2)*(1)) = 0.075. If you got this, you may have a problem in a different part of your overall equation.

how did you get 1^2 and 1 for the reactants?
