"A voltaic cell is constructed by immersing a strip of sillver metal in a 1.0 MAgNO3 solution and a strip of cadmium metal in a 1.0M Cd(NO3)2 solution. The circuit is completed by a wire and a salt bridge in the usual way.

a. Write the balanced overall cell reaction.
b. what is the cell potential for the voltaic cell described above?
c. Write the balanced half-reaction that is occurring at the anode?
d. Write the balanced half-reaction that is occurring at the cathode?
e. What would be the potential of the cell if it was modified to use a 0.10 M AgNO3 solution and a 0.30 M Cd(NO3)2 solution instead?"
