A voltaic cell is constructed that consists of a zinc anode immersed in a 0.010 M Zn^2+ (aq) solution and a copper

cathode immersed in a 2.10 M Cu^2+ (aq) solution. The cell compartments are connected by a salt bridge and the electrodes are hooked up to a voltmeter.

a. What is the expected initial voltage measured by the voltmeter?

b. What is the free energy change, Delta G, associated with this cell, as soon as the electrodes are connected to the voltmeter?

c. Describe what happens when all of the Cu^2+ is consumed.
