(See attached file for full problem description)

---
The Nernst equation is the most important equation in electrochemistry.
It is defined as follows:

Where
is the standard reduction potential of the reaction
is the gas constant
is the temperature (in Kelvin)
is the number of moles of electrons transferred in the reaction
is Faraday's constant, , and

1.
;
For the reaction above, calculate the potential if the reaction occurs at and the concentrations are as follows:
