2 HgCl2 (aq) + SnCl2 (aq) --> SnCl4 (aq) + Hg2Cl2 (s)
Hg2Cl2 (aq) + SnCl2 (aq) --> 2Hg (s) + SnCl4 (aq)
For each reaction, write the two half-reactions that make it up and calculate the overall reaction potential by adding the two half-reactions. Each overall potential should be positive in order for the reactions to occur spontanesly.
