Use the cell notation to determine the redox reaction and use the Nernst equation to determine the Ecell. Standard Ecell or Eocell will be determine using the standard potential of the cathode and anode
Step 1. Determine the redox reaction
For the following electrochemical cell Cu(s) | Cu2+ (aq, 0.0155M) || Ag+ (aq, 3.50M) | Ag(s)
Write the net cell equation. Phases are optional. Do not include the concentrations. Calculate the following values at 25°C using standard potentials as needed.
E cell° = ?V
E cell = ?V
