Given the following cell diagram: cu(s) | cu2+(0.25 m) || no3- (0.71 m) | no (2.1 atm) | pt(s)
(a) write the balanced redox reaction corresponding to the cell diagram
(b) using standard reduction potentials determine ∆ε° (table 19.1 in openstax your text)
(c) determine ∆ε (ph = 4.2)
(d) determine ∆g°
(e) determine ∆g
im sorry for wasting your time but i have -75 points some how and i think its a glitch
you won't see much happening. the solution is saturated, so the salt will fall to the bottom of the container and sit there. it will not dissolve.
however, at the atomic level, na⁺ and cl⁻ ions are being pulled from the surface of the crystals and going into solution as hydrated ions. at other places, na⁺ and cl⁻ ions are returning to the surface of the crystals.
the process is
nacl(s) ⇌ na⁺(aq) + cl⁻(aq)
the rates of the forward and reverse processes are equal, so you see no net change.
