Problem: Which two values will a spontaneous reaction have? A. +E°reduction and +E°cell B. –∆G and +E°cell C. +∆G and +E°cell D. +∆G and –E°cell E. –∆G and –K

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the greater the E°cell of a redox reaction, the more likely the reaction will occur (more spontaneous reaction)

E°cell > 0 → spontaneous in the forward direction
E°cell < 0 → nonspontaneous in the forward direction
