Homework Help: Galvanic Cell Question

  1. Oct 12, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Not feeling too confident about these answers,

    1.1) Chemical to electrical

    1.2) Iron

    1.3) Positive

    1.4) kCl

    1.5) Sn to electrode A

    1.6.1) towards Cl2 half cell
    1.6.2) towards Sn half cell

    1.7.1) Cl2 + 2e → 2Cl-
    1.7.2) Sn → Sn2+ +2e
    1.7.3) Cl2 + Sn → 2Cl- + Sn2+

    1.8) Ecell = Ecathode - Eanode
    = 1.36 -(-0.14)
    = 1.5V

    1.9) Cl2(g)/2Cl-(aq)//Sn(s)/Sn2+(aq)

    1.10) Primary cell cannot be recharged while a secondary cell can.
