Predicting Reactions and Calculating Quantity

Predict whether the following reaction would proceed spontaneously as written at 298 K by calculating both Delta G and e for the reaction, given that [Co2+] =.15 M and [Fe2+]= 0.68 M. ( E1/2= -0.282 for Co2+ + 2e- -----> Co0)

Co0 + Fe2+ ---> Co2+ + Fe0

A current of 0.452 A is passed through an electrolytic cell containing molten CaCl2 for 1.50 hours. Write the electrode reactions and calculate the quantity of products (in grams) formed at the electrodes.

Solution Summary

This solution provides step by step methods for predicting spontaneous reactions and calculating quantity of products from reactions.
