Solution: The amount of manganese in steel is determined by changing it to permanganate ion. The steel is first dissolved in nitric acid, producing Mn2+ ions. These ions are then oxidized to the deeply colored MnO4- ions by periodate ion (IO4-) in acid solution.b. Calculate E° and ΔG° at 25°C for each reaction.
