Problem Details

Determine the redox reaction represented by the following cell notation.

Fe(s) | Fe2+(aq) ‖ Cu2+(aq) | Cu(s)

 

a) Cu(s) + Fe2+(aq) → Fe(s) + Cu 2+(aq)

b) Fe(s) + Cu2+(aq) → Cu(s) + Fe 2+(aq)

c) 2 Fe(s) + Cu2+(aq) → Cu(s) + 2 Fe 2+(aq)

d) 2 Cu(s) + Fe2+(aq) → Fe(s) + 2 Cu 2+(aq)

e) 3 Fe(s) + 2 Cu2+(aq) → 2 Cu(s) + 3 Fe 2+(aq)
