You conduct another experiment on silver condensation. You add 8.0 g of silver nitrate to 200 mL of pure water. You attach a single 850 mAh AAA battery (at 1.3 V) to the electrochemical cell. You can assume that the entire battery charge is useable for electroplating. You get 3.24 g of silver metal at the end of the experiment.
a) Was your silver recovery limited by the battery capacity or the available silver in solution?
b) What was your product yield (%) using the limiting resource?
