🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Anliker's class at IUPUI.
CH3OH (l) + 3/2 O2 (g) → CO2 (g) + 2H2O (l)
ΔG°rxn = -702 kJ/mol
Direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs) have shown some promise as a viable option for providing “green” energy to small electrical devices. Calculate E° for the reaction that takes place in DMFCs:
CH3OH (l) + 3/2O2 (g) → CO2 (g) + 2H2O (l)
Use values of ΔG°f from Appendix 4.
