AP® CHEMISTRY 2007 SCORING GUIDELINES (Form B) Question 3 2 H2(g) + O2(g) → 2 H2O(l) In a hydrogen-oxygen fuel cell, energy is produced by the overall reaction represented above. (a) When the fuel cell operates at 25°C and 1.00 atm for 78.0 minutes, 0.0746 mol of O2(g) is consumed. Calculate the volume of H2(g) consumed during the same time period. Express your answer in liters measured at 25°C and 1.00 atm. (0.0746 mol O2) × V= n H 2 RT P = 2 mol H 2 = 0.149 mol H2 1 mol O2 One point is earned for calculation of moles of H 2 . (0.149 mol H2 )(0.0821 L atm mol −1 K −1 )(298 K) 1.00 atm One point is earned for substitution into PV = nRT . One point is earned for the answer. = 3.65 L H2 (b) Given that the fuel cell reaction takes place in an acidic medium, (i) write the two half reactions that occur as the cell operates, O2 + 4 H+ + 4 e− → 2 H2O One point is earned for each of the two half reactions. H2 → 2 H+ + 2 e− (ii) identify the half reacti...
