How is this accomplished? ( 5 pts ) In order to measure the standard reduction potentials of Ag/Ag+,Pb/Pb2+, Cu/Cu2+ and Zn/Zn2+ I will be using a Ag/AgCl reference electrode and a voltmeter to measure the standard reduction potentials of the half-cells. For each half-cell I will be putting about 3 cm in depth of the metal ion solution in a glass tube with the bottom of it covered in a dialysis film. Then, I will be placing the appropriate metal into each of the solutions. Finally, I will be measuring the standard reduction potentials with the voltmeter and the reference electrode. For each half-cell I will be asked to calculate the Ecell. The equation I will be using is Ecell=Ecathode-Eanode. The Ag/AgCl reference electrode has the equation: AgCl(s) +e- --> Ag(s) +Cl-(aq) E=0.22V. The remaining goals are to construct a) a battery with E = 1.7 V and b) a cell with E cell = 0.50V. How are these accomplished? ( 5 pts ) In order to construct a battery with E=1.7V, I will be asked to determine which two half-cells can be connected to make a total voltage of 1.7V or greater. I will be looking for which half-cell is the anode and which is the cathode. Then, I will determine which two half-cells make a total voltage of 1.7V or greater by calculating each pair of half-cells. I will be using the equation Ecell=Ecathode-Eanode.1....
