Answer the following five short answer questions. Partial credit will be given, so show
your work whenever possible. Your final answers must be written in the boxes provided.
1.) (12 points) Up to 0.0432 grams of silver dichromate (Ag2Cr2O7; MW=432 g•mol-1)
will dissolve in 1.00 L of water at 25° C to form Ag+ and Cr2O72-.
a.) Calculate the solubility product constant, Ksp, for silver dichromate at 25° C. b.) Suppose AgNO3(s), which dissociates completely, is added to the above solution
until the Ag+ concentration reaches 0.10 M. How many grams of Ag2Cr2O7(s)
precipitate will form? Assume the volume remains 1.00 L. Name: _______________________ Page 6 of 10. 2.) (12 points) Consider a monatomic ideal gas at a volume of 2 L which is held at

electrode in a 1.0 M solution of cadmium nitrate (Cd(NO3)2) and a titanium electrode
in a 1.0 M solution of titanium nitrate (Ti(NO3)3), both at 25° C. To complete the
circuit, the solutions are connected by a salt bridge and the electrodes are connected by
a.) Lonnie measures the voltage across the cell and determines it to be 1.60 V. He
also notices that the titanium electrode is growing larger. What is the standard
reduction potential, ε°, for Ti3+ [Ti3+ + 3e- -------> Ti(s)]? b.) Into which solution are the negative ions from the salt bridge flowing? Explain
your answer. c.) At the Tuesday lecture, Head TA Dave Laws tries to set up the galvanic cell, but
accidentally spills a large amount of distilled water into one of the solutions. This
causes the voltage measured to be higher than 1.60 V. Which solution did Dave
accidentally spill the water into? Explain your answer. Name: _______________________ Page 8 of 10. 4.) (11 points) A student is doing a research project on the thermodynamics of dissolving
sucrose, C12H22O11, in water according to the equation:
C12H22O11(s) C12H22O11(aq) In her first experiment, the student takes 34.2 g of sucrose (MW=342 g•mol-1) and
completely dissolves it in 1.00 L of water inside a calorimeter which is initially at
25.0 °C. Once the sucrose is dissolved, she measures the temperature to be 24.5 °C.
a.) What is the enthalpy change, ∆H, in kJ•mol-1 for this process? Remember that
for a calorimeter, you can use the equation: q = -mCp∆T, where the specific heat

in order to lower the temperature from 25.0 °C to 23.5 °C? c.) Based on your answer to part (a), would you predict the K for the dissolution of
sucrose in 50 °C water to be larger, smaller, or the same as the K for the
