Calculate the potential (voltage) of a standard cell

  1. Jul 18, 2007 #1
    Calculate the potential (voltage) of a standard cell with these half-cell reactions:
    Ni(s) -----> Ni2+ + 2 e-
    2 e- + Cl2(g) -----> 2 Cl-

    What is your [tex] E_{cell}[/tex] for each redox reaction?
    Either they are in the problem, or there is a list that has all the [tex] E_{cell}[/tex] for many reactions.
