The light at the end of the tunnel The light at the end of the tunnel Read 17.7 (pg. 716), do PE 7, 8 - use Ex. 17.8 (ignore Ex. 17.7). Also 17.62, 17.64 (731) Note: you need to multiply equations so that e cancel out. However, unlike Hess’s law problems, DO NOT also multiply E° PE 7 - NiO 2 has the greater reduction potential, thus it is reduced and Fe is oxidized … NiO 2 + 2H 2 O + 2e Ni(OH) 2 + 2OH Fe + 2OH Fe(OH) 2 + 2e NiO 2 + 2H 2 O + Fe Ni(OH) 2 + Fe(OH) 2 E°cell = E°reduced - E°oxidized = 0.49 V - -0.88 V = 1.37 V
PE 8 PE 8 PE 8 - MnO 4 has the greater reduction potential, thus it is reduced and Cr is oxidized … MnO 4 + 8H + + 5e Mn 2+ + 4H 2 O Cr Cr 3+ + 3e Electrons cannot exist in isolation (they must cancel out), so first x 3 and second x 5 3MnO 4 + 24H + + 15e 3Mn 2+ + 12H 2 O 5Cr 5Cr 3+ + 15e 3MnO 4 + 24H + + 5Cr 3Mn 2+ + 12H 2 O + 5Cr 3+ E°cell = E°reduced - E°oxidized
