We’re asked to determine the ∆G° at 25°C for the hall-reactions:

Cr2O72- + 14H+ + 6e- 2Cr3+ + 7H2O     E° = 1.20 V

H2O2 + 2H+ + 2e- 2 H2O                      E° = 1.75 V

For this problem, follow the steps:

Step 1. Determine the cathode and anode and the number of electrons involved

Step 2. Calculate the Ecell

Step 3. Calculate for the ΔG

Step 1. Determine the oxidation and half reactions:

Loss of Electron is an Oxidation process undergone by the Reducing Agent (LEORA). In the Anode, Oxidation happens (An Ox)

Gain of Electron is a Reduction process undergone by the Oxidizing Agent (GEROA). Reduction happens in the Cathode (Red Cat)

You can determine the anode and cathode by comparing their E° values.

• ↓ E° → oxidation → anode

• ↑ E° → reduction → cathode
