Eexceptionally answer I've tried so far is wrong and eexceptionally answer I have looked up is additionally wrong.

You are watching: Compute the equilibrium constant for the reaction between ni2+(aq) and zn(s).

I have one attempt staying prior to I shed all credit for the problem.

I went about fixing this difficulty by calculating the E-cell of Ni2+ and Zn which is E-Cathode - E-Anode which is (-0.23-0.76)=-0.099

I then offered the Ecell=(0.0592/n)logK formula

Due to the fact that tbelow are 2 electrons affiliated, n=2

-0.99 = (0.0592/2)logK

K= 3.58 * 10-34

This is wrong.

Other answers I have actually tried: 1.7 * 1017 , 1.8 * 1017 , and

2.0 8 1017

I have actually no clue what I am doing wrong. I literally just plugging stuff right into the formula. I even looked up the answer and also that was wrong as well.

Your intake of the formula is correct but you have actually not calculated the voltage properly:

Let's write out the half reactions.

Ni2+ (aq) + 2e- -> Ni (s)

Zn (s) -> Zn2+ (aq) + 2e-

The reduction potential of the pair Ni2+/Ni is -0.23V.

The reduction potential of the pair Zn2+/Zn is -0.76. However, this is reduction. In this electrochemical cell, zinc is being oxidised. So the potential of the pair Zn/Zn2+ is 0.76V.

When you add the voltperiods of the fifty percent reactions you acquire a voltage for the all at once reactivity of 0.53V. The remainder of the question you did correctly, but since you had actually the voltage wrong it came out wrong.

You're never before going to obtain an unfavorable cell voltage.

Post your questions around chemisattempt, whether they're school connected or just out of general interest. Please carry out not article entire difficulty sets or concerns that you haven't attempted to answer yourself. Also please don't usage this sub to cwarmth on your exams!! This is supposedly a point currently that world are creating exams from residence.
