6N.13 part a

Postby Malia Shitabata 1F » Mon Mar 02, 2020 11:50 pm

Calculate the reaction quotient, Q, for the following cell reactions, given the measured values of the cell potential. balance the chemical equations by using the smallest whole number coefficients: Pt(s)|Sn4+(aq), Sn2+(aq)||Pb4+(aq), Pb2+(aq)|C(gr), Ecell=+1.33

Is there a typo in the answer because I keep getting 2.65x10^6 but the solution manual says Q=10^6. I used all the same numbers, I just simplified it differently compared to the answer key.

I've been getting the same answer that you're getting, so I'm 99% sure that it is an error in the solutions manual.

I am getting the same answer as well. I think it is an error in the solution manual.

i third that. definitely an error.
