Ag2CrO4(s) + 2e- 2Ag(s) + CrO42-(aq)
A chemist wishes to determine the concentration of CrO42- electrochemically. A cell is constructed consisting of a saturated calomel electrode (SCE; which has a reduction potential of 0.242 V relative to the SHE) and a silver wire coated with Ag2CrO4 and suspended in a CrO42- solution.
1) What is the potential of this cell at 25‹C when [CrO42-] = 1.00 M?
2) Calculate ƒ¢G for the full-cell reaction at 25‹C when [CrO42-] = 1.00 M?
3) What is the potential of this cell at 25‹C when [CrO42-] = 1.10~10-6 M?
4) For a solution of unknown [CrO42-], the measured potential for the cell at 25‹C is 0.363 V. What is [CrO42-] (in mol/L)?
