Chapter 17 Nickel and aluminum electrodes are used to build a galvanic cell. The standard reduction potential for the nickel(II) ion is -0.26 V and that of the aluminum(III) ion is -1.66V Part A What is the theoretical cell potential assuming standard conditions? E 0 cell = E 0 reduction + E 0 oxidation E 0 cell = -0.26 – (-1.66) E 0 cell = 1.40 V Part B Complete the sentences describing the cell Match the words Al, Ni to the appropriate blanks in the sentences on the right. 1. In the nickel-aluminum galvanic cell, the cathode is Nickel electrode 2. Therefore, electrons flow from Aluminum electrode to Nickel electrode 3. The Aluminum electrode loses mass, while the, Nickel electrode gains mass. Part C Complete the shorthand notation for this cell. Al| Al 3+ || Ni 2+ |Ni Drag the appropriate labels to their respective targets. For neutral species, leave the pink target blank.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
