Electrochemistry and Cell Diagram

What voltage would you measure if you set up the cell diagrammed below?

(I represents a straight line up and down)

Ag (s) I 0.79 M Ag^+ (aq) II 0.22 M Zn^2+ (aq) I Zn

Solution Summary

This solution determines what voltage is required for the cell diagram aforementioned by finding the net cell reaction and using the Nernst equation.
