First, we have to find the two half-reactions:

MnO2 + 4H+ + 2e- → Mn+2 + 2H2O (E = 1.23 V)

O2 + 2H+ + 2e- → H2O2 (E = 0.682 V)

Of course, the second reaction needs to be switched around. When we do, we ...

Calculating delta G and standard cell potential

Consider the oxidation of ammonia:
4NH3 (g) + 3O2(g) --> 2N2 (g) + 6H2O

Calcualte the delta G for the reaction. If this reaction were used in a fuel cell, what would the standard cell potential be? What would be the cell potential at 100 degrees C?
