Problem

In a Li-ion battery the composition of the cathode is LiCoO2 when completely discharged. On charging approximately 50% of the Li + ions can be extracted from the cathode and transported to the graphite anode where they intercalate between the layers.

What is the composition of the cathode when the battery is fully charged? Write the mole ratios of the elements in the cathode.
