An amateur alchemist claims to have discovered a new metal, which she has named metallium, with the elemental symbol Me. She has carried out an experiment in which a current of 0.500 amps were passed through an aqueous solution of Me(SO4)2 for 45.0 minutes, which deposited 0.682 grams of the metal. Using electrochemistry, show that the metal is not a new element and identify the metal.

Please be as detailed as you can in your calculations.
