Problem Details

What is produced at each electrode in the electrolysis of AgF(aq)? 

Match the products with the correct bin

products=H2(gas), O2(g), F2(g), Ag(s)

Bins-anode bin, cathode bin, not produced bin.

Given Reduction half-reaction Potential (V)

F2(g)+2e−→2F−(aq) +2.87

O2(g)+4H+(aq)+4e−→2H2O(l) +1.23

Br2(l)+2e−→2Br−(aq) +1.07

Ag++e−→Ag(s) +0.80

2H2O(l)+2e−→H2(g)+2OH−(aq)−0.83

Na+(aq)+e−→Na(s) −2.71
