  1. got this on google unknown half-cell(anode). ... 2Ag+(aq)+Pb(s)→2Ag(s)+Pb2+(aq) E∘cell.

    Top answer:
    Ecell = Eocell + (0.0592/#e)log(Pb^2+)/(Pb^2+) Ecell = 0.1776 Eocell= I don't have my text handy but I think this is -0.126. You should verify that. #e ...

  2. This is a concentration cell.
    Pb ==> Pb^2+ + 2e.......................Eox = ?
    Pb^2+ + 2e ==> Pb...................... Ered = - 0.126
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Pb + Pb^2+ ==> Pb^2+ + Pb........ Ecell = 0.1776
    Eox + Ered = Ecell
    Eox + (-0.126) = 0.1776 which I will round to 0.178
    Eox = 0.304 and written as a reduction it is -0.304
    -0.304 = Eocell -(0.0592/2)*log (Pb)/(Pb^2+)
    -0.304 = - 0.126 - (0.0592/2)*log (1)/(Pb^2+).
    Solve for (Pb^2+) in moles/L.
