Lead metal is added to 0.140M Cr^+3(aq).

Pb(s)+ 2Cr^3+(aq)---> Pb^2+(aq) + 2Cr^2+(aq)

a)What is [Pb^2+] when equilibrium is established in the reaction?

b)What is [Cr^2+] when equilibrium is established in the reaction?

c)What is [Cr^3+] when equilibrium is established in the reaction?

    Here is what I would do.
    Look up standard potentials for Pb to Pb^+2 and for Cr^+3 to Cr+2.
    Add the reduction half to the oxidation half to obtain Ecell at standard conditions.
    At standard conditions,
    nFEcell = 2.303*RT*log K
    F is 96,485; R is 8.314 and T is 298. Calculate K, then set up an ICE chart for the reaction and solve for the components using the K value. Check my thinking.
