The Nernst equation can be applied to half reactions Calculate
The Nernst equation can be applied to half reactions. Calculate the reduction potential at 25oC of each of the following half cells.
a. Cu/ Cu2+ (0.10 M) (The half reaction is Cu2+ + 2e– n Cu.)
b. Cu/ Cu2+ (2.0 M)
c. Cu/ Cu2+(1.0 × 10–4 M)
d. MnO4– (0.10 M)/ Mn2+ (0.010 M) at pH = 3.00 (The half reaction is MnO4- + 8H+ + 5e– n Mn2+ + 4H2O.)
e. MnO4 2 (0.10 M)/ Mn2+ (0.010 M) at pH = 1.00
