Consider an electrochemical cell that utilizes lithium and zinc. What is the standard voltage for this cell?

Li + + e–      →       Li                                                                      E° = – 3.05 V

Zn2+ + 2 e–      →        Zn                                                               E° = +0.799 V

 

a. 1.90 V

b. 2.29 V

c. 3.85 V

d. 5.34 V
