Problem Details

For the following electrochemical cell        

Co(s)|Co2+(aq, 0.0155 M)||Ag+(aq, 1.50 M)|Ag(s)

write the net cell equation. Phases are optional. Do not include the concentrations.

Calculate the following values at 25.0 °C using standard potentials as needed.

cell =            V                  ΔG°rxn =           kJ/mol

Ecell =            V                  ΔGrxn =           kJ/mol
