3. Illustrate the migration of all anions and cations in a zinc-copper cell by drawing a labeled diagram of such a cell. What general statement can you make concerning the directions of flow of an...
In a copper-zinc voltaic cell, one half-cell consists of a ZnZn electrode inserted in a solution of zinc sulfate and the other half-cell consists of a CuCu electrode inserted in a copper sulfate solution. These two half-cells are separated by a salt bridge. At the zinc electrode (anode), ZnZn metal undergoes oxidation by losing two electrons and enters the solution as Zn2+Zn2+ ions. The oxidation half-cell reaction that takes place at the anode is Zn(s)→Zn2+(aq)+2e−Zn(s)→Zn2+(aq)+2e− The CuCu ions undergo reduction...
5. What was the purpose of the NaNO3 solution in this experiment? 6. Could a solution of NaCl be used instead of NaNO3? 7. What was the purpose of FeSO4 solution in this experiment? 8. Could a solution of FeCl, be used instead of FeSO4? 9. Could a solution of NaSO4 be used instead of FeSO4? 10. Calculate the standard cell potential for the spontaneous redox reaction between a Pb(s)/Pb(NO3)2(aq) half-cell and a Ag(s)/AgNO3(aq) half-cell. Which metal would be oxidized?...
