    Determining Redox Potentials of Acid Water

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    What is the redox potential of an acid mine water sample having Fe3+ = 7.00E-3 M and Fe2+ = 3.00E-4 M given that E0 (standard electrode potential) for the Fe3+/Fe2+ couple is 0.77V

    I have failed at this problem several times so it would be great if you could work it out.

    Hint: Nernst equation.
