Your task is to determine E for the reduction of CO 2 (g) to C 3 H


Your task is to determine E° for the reduction of CO2(g) to C3H8(g) in two different ways and to explain why each gives the same result. 

(a) Consider a fuel cell in which the cell reaction corresponds to the complete combustion of propane gas. Write the half-cell reactions and the overall reaction. Determine ΔrG° and E°cell for the reaction, then obtain E°CO2/C3H8

(b) Without considering the oxidation that occurs simultaneously, obtain E°CO2/C3H8 directly from tabulated thermodynamic data for the reduction half-cell reaction.
