A solution is prepared in which a trace or small amount of Fe2+ is added to a much larger amount of solution in which the [OH-] is 1.0 x 10^-2 M. Some Fe(OH)2 precipitates. The value of Ksp for Fe(OH)2 = 8.0 x10^-10.

A. Assuming that the hydroxide is 1.0 x 10^-2 M, calculate the concentration of Fe2+ ions in the solution.

B. A battery is prepared using the above solution with an iron wire dipping into it as one half-cell. The other half-cell is the standard nickel electrode. Write the balanced net ionic equation for the cell reaction.

c. use the nerst equation to calculate the potential of the above cell.

I don't know how to do B & C
For (A) i got 8.0*10^-6M. if not please help
Thank You!

  1. A is right.
    What values are you using for Eo Ni and Eo Fe? My best table for those is over 50 years old.

  2. For Ni its -0.28V
    & for Fe its -.440V
    Is it right?

  3. EFe = EoFe -(0.0592/2)log(Fe/Fe^2+)
    Substitute 1 for Fe and 8E-6 for Fe^2+, solve for EFe. Then reverse the sign and the half equation and add to the Ni reduction equation.
    Fe + Ni^2+ ==> Fe^2+(8E-6M) + Ni
