Problem: What is produced at each electrode in the electrolysis of an aqueous solution of both NaBr and AgF?Drag the appropriate items to their respective bins.Na(s), H2(g), Ag(s), F2(g), O2(g), Br2(l)

FREE Expert Solution

Possible reduction reactions :

Ag+/Ag → 0.80 V

Na+/Na → -2.71 V

2H+/ H2 → 0 V

Reduction (cathode) prefers the most positive E°cell, hence Ag will be produced in the cathode
