# Problem: In a particular electrolysis process, E°cathode = -1.829 V and E°anode = 2.368 V. What minimum voltage must be applied to drive the nonspontaneous process?Report your response to two digits after the decimal.

###### FREE Expert Solution

The minimum voltage necessary for the reaction to occur refers to the cell potential (E˚cell), which is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{E}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{cell}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{E}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{cathode}}}{\mathbf{-}}{\mathbf{E}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{anode}}}}$
