Unformatted text preview: dsj294 – hw10 – Holcombe – (53570) 1 This printout should have 25 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. You must use the Table of Stan dard Reduction Potentials on Dr. Mc Cord’s course website for all prob lems in which values are not given. http://courses.cm.utexas.edu/pmccord/ ch302/help/redtable.html Note: emf = electromotive force, which is analogous to potential. 001 10.0 points A tin electrode in 0 . 601 M Sn(NO 3 ) 2 (aq) is connected to a hydrogen electrode in which the pressure of H 2 is 1 bar. Sn  Sn 2+  H +  H 2  Pt If the cell potential is 0 . 061 V at 25 ◦ , what is the pH of the electrolyte at the hydrogen electrode? Correct answer: 1 . 44592. Explanation: The cell reaction is Sn(s) + 2 H + → Sn 2+ + H 2 (g) .
