classical cell potential question
« on: July 11, 2018, 06:04:29 PM »
Ok, so the exercise goes like this:



Zn/Zn2+ (0,0955M) // Co2+ (0,00678M)/Co
E° (Zn/Zn2+)= -0,763V; E° (Co/Co2+)= -0,227V
Calculate the cell potential and tell if the process is spontaneous or not.

I calculated the cell potential to be around 0.502V... But I would like to check my result, to see if it is correct

I think I would agree with that. Assuming I'm doing it correctly.
