How can i work this cell reaction?

  1. Apr 27, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Pt l H2 (1atm) l HBr (1x10-4M) ll CuBr l Cu = 0.599 V at 298K

    i) determine the overall cell reation and calculate the Ksp of CuBr at 298K
    ii) What would be the effect on EMF if pressure of H2 increases from 1atm to 2atm. Why?


    2. Relevant equations

    CuBr = Cu+ x Br-

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know how to simplify this equation to ions
    And can someone explain what the pressure change would do? Do i have to think about the La chatlear's principles?

    Start writing two separate half cell reactions.
