    An electrochemical cell is constructed from the following half cells, linked by an external circuit and by a KNO3 salt bridge.
    - an Al(s) electrode in 1.0M Al(NO3)3 solution
    - a Pb(s) electrode in 1.0M Pb(NO3)2 solution

    How would I write the balanced overall cell reaction? What steps would I take in order to determine the half cell reactions first?
