Chem Help!

  1. May 28, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If .060 faraday is passed through an electrolytic cell containing a solution of In +3 ions,what is the maximum number of moles on In that could be deposited at the cathode? Show half cell equation and demensional analysis.

    2. Relevant equations
    N/A


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I actually was just confused about this problem. I originally thought I should use half cell redox but now I don't know what I can use. If I should use half cell just tell me and I can do it. If there is another method could you get me started or guide me through? Thanks!

    X+ + e- -------> X

    you need 1F of electricity for this reaction to occur, 1mol X+ to be converted to 1 mol X.

    Faraday's electrolysis law. Not that it states anything else that Kushal wrote.
