For Exam 1, Know How To: 1. Balance chemical equations for redox reactions by the half-reaction method. 2. Write the net redox reaction that occurs in a galvanic cell if you know the corresponding voltaic diagram of the cell. 3. Write the voltaic diagram of a galvanic cell if you know the corresponding net redox reaction that occurs in the galvanic cell. 4. Extract information about a reaction from the value of the voltage of an electrochemical cell using the reaction. 5. Predict if it is possible to use a specific chemical species X to oxidize or reduce another specific chemical species Y at standard conditions. 6. Use the Nernst equation to calculate a cell potential under nonstandard conditions or the concentration of a chemical species. 7. Calculate a standard cell potential, given the standard electrode potentials, and predict the spontaneous direction of the cell reaction.
