i am having trouble writing the half reactions and the balanced
equation for the galvanic cell
Ag(s) |AgI(s) | I−(aq) ||
Cl−(aq) |AgCl(s) |Ag(s)
With both reactions written as re
Ag + I^- ==> AgI + e on the left written as an oxidation.
AgCl + e ==> Ag + Cl^- on the right written as a reduction.
This may not be the way the reaction occurs spontaneously.
