Use the Nernst equation to determine the concentration of Pb2+ in the anode when battery is dead or Ecell = 0 V.
Step 1. Setup the Nernst equation
A Pb/Pb2+ concentration cell at 25°C has initial concentrations of 0.051 M Pb 2+ and 1.4 M Pb2+ at the anode and cathode. What is the concentration of Pb 2+ in the anode when the cell is "dead"? Express your answer in M.
