Problem: Use the half-reactions below to produce a voltaic cell with the given standard cell potential.

FREE Expert Solution

In a voltaic/galvanic cell:

Ÿ Anode is in the negative side (left side of the diagram)

▪ Anode → oxidation
oxidation half-reaction happens in the anode solution
▪ losing electrons → becoming more positive → anode dissolves away

Ÿ Cathode is in the positive side (right side of the diagram)

▪ Cathode → reduction
reduction half-reaction happens in the anode solution
▪ gaining electrons → becoming more negative → solids is deposited in the surface
