ii) B does not react spontaneously with any of the 1 mol/L solutions above or with dilute sulfuric acid.
iii) C reacts spontaneously with dilute sulfuric acid and with 1 mol/L solutions of all the other metallic salts.
iv) D reacts spontaneously with 1 mol/L BNO3. It does not react with dilute sulfuric acid.
a) Use the observations and arrange the following five reduction half-cell reactions in order, the one with the largest positive reduction potential listed first.
A2+ + 2e- → A(s)
B+ + e- → B(s)
C2+ + 2e- → C(s)
D2+ + 2e- → D(s)

c) Which ion is the best oxidizing agent?
5. Calculate the voltage of a standard cell with the following half-cell reactions:
Ni(s) → Ni2+ + 2e-
2e- + Cl2(g) → 2Cl-
6. a) What metal might you fasten to the hull of an aluminum boat to give it cathodic protection in sea water?
b) Name two metals you would not use. Explain the choices.
7. By the electrolysis of water, 11.2 L of oxygen at STP was prepared.
a) What charge was required?
b) If a current of 0.5 A was used, how long did it take?
8. Aluminum is one of the most widely used metals. Aluminum is made by electrolyzing aluminum oxide in a solvent called cryolite.
a)Identify the products of the anode and cathode half-reactions that occur during the electrolysis of  aluminum oxide.
b) Why is it important to recycle as much aluminum as possible?
c) Identify one environmental concern and one health concern associated with the product of aluminum.
