Solution:
A voltaic cell is constructed. One electrode compartment consists of an aluminum strip placed in a solution of Al ( NO3 )3, and the other has a nickel strip placed in a solution of NiSO4. The overall cell reaction is
2Al(s) + 3Ni2+(aq)  →  2Al3+(aq) + 3Ni(s)
Write the half-reaction that occurs at the cathode.
