Cell Potentials
« on: June 14, 2021, 10:53:59 PM »
I have no idea what I should use as the reduction potential for   Mn—>Mn(NO3)2 or       Sn(NO3)2—>Sn

I can’t find these on the reduction potential table.

Nitrates are dissociated, what ions will be present in the solution?

Would it just be Mn^2+ and Sn^4+? How would I know which side of the reaction these ions go on?

I believe I have figured it out. Is it 1.049?

Do you mean standard potential of:

Mn + Sn2+ ---> Mn2+ + Sn

?

Slightly lowered, but it is OK.

Maybe source of data gives this little difference (about 0,005 eV).

Yeah that’s what I got. Thank you for confirming for me!
