The standard reduction potentials of lithium metal and chlorine gas are as follows: (for Li, reduction potential is -3.04, for Cl it is 1.36)


In a galvanic cell, the two half-reactions combine to 2Li{+](s) + Cl{-}2(g) --> 2Li{+}Cl{-}(aq)

cell potential=4.4 V

Calculate the free energy Gibbs free energy of the reaction.

i m using the right formula .. but I keep getting it wrong! it keeps telling me to check the sign ..
