Homework Help: Inorganic chemistry

Posted by Steve on Saturday, April 11, 2009 at 10:31pm.

One kind of battery used in watches contains mercury(II) oxide. As current flows, the mercury oxide is reduced to mercury.

HgO(s) + H2O(l) + 2e^- ==> Hg(l) + 2 OH^-(aq)

If 2.5 x 10^-5 amperes flows continuously for 1095 days, what mass of Hg(l) is produced?
