Problem: A rechargeable battery is constructed based on a concentration cell constructed of two Ag/Ag+ half-cells. The volume of each half-cell is 2.0 L and the concentrations of Ag + in the half-cells are 1.25 M and 1.0 x 10–3 M.c. Upon recharging, how long would it take to redissolve 1.00 x 10 2 g of silver at a charging current of 10.0 amps?
