Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Hannah on Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 7:53pm.

Im having trouble on a question Im not sure what it is they are asking for.

A voltaic cell similar to that shown in Figure 20.5 is constructed. One electrode compartment consists of a silver strip placed in a solution of AgNO3, and the other has a iron strip placed in a solution of FeCl2. The overall cell reaction is given below.

2 Ag+(aq) + Fe(s) 2 Ag(s) + Fe2+(aq)


a)Which electrode is the anode, and which is the cathode.
anode


wouldn't the Ag be the anode because it is losing electrons and the Fe be the cathode???
