    Please see the attached file.

    The cell can be drawn as shown above

    The cell reaction can be written as

    EMF of the cell can be calculated as Ecell= EL - ER

    Ecell = 0.3-0.8
    Ecell= -0.5

    EMF of the cell at 250C can be calculated using Nernst equation

    Ecell = E0cell - 0.0591/nlog [oxidized]/[Reduced]

    Ecell= -0.5-0.0591/2log [0.5]/[0.6]

    Ecell= ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution calculates the value of ?G for the galvanic cell described in problem 1.
