Homework Help: Chemistry - Cell Notation

Posted by Kay on Tuesday, May 26, 2009 at 9:38pm.

Enter the balanced chemical equation including states that describes the electrochemical cell that is represented by the cell notation as shown.

Pt(s) | F-(aq) | F2(g) || Cl-(aq), AuCl4-(aq) | Au(s)

I'm having trouble balancing this...

I get AuCl4- + 2F- --> Au + 4Cl- + F2

...but the charges don't cancel out on both sides. The left side has 3- and the right side has 4-. I've been trying to change the numbers around but then I upset the balanced atoms. Help?
