We’re being asked to anode, cathode, and net cell reaction for the given cell notation below:
Cu(s) | Cu2+(aq) || Ag+(aq) | Ag(s)
When writing a cell notation, we use the following format – “as easy as ABC”
Recall the mnemonics LEO GER.
Write the half-reactions as they occur at each electrode and the net cell reaction for this electrochemical cell containing copper and silver: Cu(s) | Cu2+(aq) || Ag+(aq) | Ag(s)
Net cell reaction?
