Voltage changes when current flows ~0A I 0 A When I > 0 A, E = E (cathode) –E (anode) Overpotential is the voltage required to overcome the activation energy to force the reaction occur

Unformatted text preview: -5 M I 3-at pH 10.00 with PH2 fixed at 1.00 bar. 3I-+ 2H 2 O I 3-+ H 2 (g) +2OH-(a) Find the cell voltage if no current is flowing. (b) then suppose electrolysis Increase the [I 3-]s to 3.0 x 10-4 M, but other concentrations are unaffected. Suppose cell resistance is 2.0 ohms and current is 63 mA the cathode overpotential is 0.382 V and the anode overpotential is 0.025 V. What voltage needed to drive this reaction? is needed to drive this reaction? Electrogravimetric Analysis Coulometry Amperometry Homework: 17-1; 17-4; 17-8; 17-9; 17-12; and 17-15....
