We are being asked to calculate the standard free-energy change for the given reaction:
2Au3+(aq) + 3Cr(s) <--> 2Au(s) + 3Cr2+(aq)
We are going to the following steps to solve the problem:
Step 1. Separate the two half-cell reaction
Step 2. Determine the cathode and the anode
Step 3. Determine ΔE°cell
Step 4. Calculate ΔG°cell
Calculate the standard free-energy change for the following reaction at 25°C. Standard reduction potentials can be found here. 2Au3+(aq) + 3Cr(s) <--> 2Au(s) + 3Cr2+(aq)
