Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Mike on Thursday, November 11, 2010 at 7:58pm.

Calculate Delta G for the spontaneous cell produced from the following:

Al^3+ + 3e^- -> Al (s)
Mg^2+ + 2e^- -> Mg (s)

In order to solve this, you need to determine the half reactions..ie which is reduced and which is oxidized. How do I know which one is being reduced and which is being oxidized? :s
