Problem

Design an electrolytic cell from the following half-reactions:

Cd 2+(aq) + 2 e →  Cd(s)                   E  o = −0.40

Cr 3+(aq) + 3 e → Cr(s)                     E   o = −0.74

 

The overall cell potential of the electrolytic cell is:

A. −1.14           B. −0.34             C. −0.28               D. 0.28             E. 0.34
