reactions by an integer to make the number of electrons in both halfreactions equal. 4. Add halfreactions and cancel identical species. Balancing Redox Equations Example: Cr2O72-(aq) + HSO3-(aq) Cr3+(aq) + HSO4-(aq) How can we balance this equation?

First Steps: Separate into half-reactions. Balance elements except H and O. Balancing Redox Equation: The Half-Reaction Method Cr2O72-(aq) 2Cr3+(aq) HSO3-(aq) HSO4-(aq) How many electrons are needed to balance the

charge in each half-reaction? Balancing Redox Equation: The Half-Reaction Method Adding electrons: 6e- + Cr2O72-(aq) 2Cr3+(aq) HSO3-(aq) HSO4-(aq) + 2e How can we balance the oxygen atoms? Balancing Redox Equation:

How can we balance the electrons? Balancing Redox Equation: The Half-Reaction Method 14H+ + 6e- + Cr2O72- 2Cr3+ + 7H2O 3[H2O + HSO3- HSO42- + 2e- + 2H+] The final balanced equation: Cr2O72- + 3HSO3- + 8H+ 2Cr3+ + 3HSO4- + 4H2O

Sample Exercises Balance the following redox reactions in acidic solution. 1) Br(aq) + MnO4(aq) Br2(l) + Mn2+(aq) 2) Cr2O72-(aq) + H2O2(aq) Cr3+(aq) + H2O(l) + O2(g) The HalfReaction Method for Balancing Redox Equations in Basic Solution

1. Use the halfreaction method as specified for acidic solutions to obtain the final balanced equation as if H+ ions were present. 2. To both sides of the equation, add a number of OH ions that is equal to the number of H+ ions present. (You want to eliminate H+ by turning is into H2O) 3. Form H2O on the side containing both H+ and OH ions, and eliminate the number of H2O molecules that appear on both sides of the equation.

4. Check that elements and charges are balanced. Sample Exercises Balance the following redox reactions in basic solution: Br2(aq) + OH-(aq) BrO3-(aq) + Br-(aq) + H2O; Cr(OH)4-(aq) + OH-(aq) CrO42-(aq) + H2O; Galvanic Cell

A device in which chemical energy is converted to electrical energy. It uses a spontaneous redox reaction to produce a current that can be used to generate energy or to do work. A Galvanic Cell In Galvanic Cell:

Oxidation occurs at the anode. Reduction occurs at the cathode. Salt bridge or porous disk allows ions to flow without extensive mixing of the solutions. Salt bridge contains a strong electrolyte held in a gellike matrix. Porous disk contains tiny passages that allow hindered flow of ions.

Galvanic Cell Cell Potential A galvanic cell consists of an oxidizing agent (in cathode half-cell) and a reducing agent (in anode half-cell). Electrons flows through a wire from the anode halfcell to the cathode half-cell. The driving force that allows electrons to flow is called the electromotive force (emf) or the cell

potential (Ecell). The unit of electrical potential is volt (V). 1 V = 1 J/C of charge transferred. Standard Reduction Potentials Values of E in standard table of half-cell potentials are for reduction half-cell reactions Table 18.1 (or 17.1) 1 M, 1 atm, 25C

When a half-reaction is reversed, the algebraic sign of E changes. When a half-reaction is multiplied by an integer, the value of E remains the same. A galvanic cell runs spontaneously in the direction that gives a positive value for Ecell Example: Fe3+(aq) + Cu(s) Cu2+(aq) + Fe2+(aq) Half-Reactions:

Fe3+ + e Fe2+ E = 0.77 V Cu2+ + 2e Cu E = 0.34 V To balance the cell reaction and calculate the cell potential, we must reverse reaction 2. Cu Cu2+ + 2e E = 0.34 V

Each Cu atom produces two electrons but each Fe3+ ion accepts only one electron, therefore reaction 1 must be multiplied by 2. 2Fe3+ + 2e 2Fe2+ E = 0.77 V Standard Cell Potential 2Fe3+ + 2e 2Fe2+ ;

E = 0.77 V (cathode) Cu Cu2+ + 2e ; E = 0.34 V (anode) Balanced Cell Reaction: Cu + 2Fe3+ Cu2+ + 2Fe2+ Cell Potential: E Ecell = E(cathode) E(anode)

Ecell = 0.77 V 0.34 V = 0.43 V Calculating Standard Cell Potential Given the following reduction potentials: Ag+(aq) + e- Ag(s); E = 0.80 V Zn2+(aq) + 2e- Zn(s);

E = -0.76 V Calculate the cell potential for the following reaction and predict whether the reaction will take place: Zn(s) + 2Ag+(aq) Zn2+(aq) + 2Ag(s) Standard Cell Potentials Given the following reduction potentials:

Cu2+(aq) + 2e- Cu(s); E = 0.34 V Ni2+(aq) + 2e- Ni(s); E = -0.23 V

Predict whether the following reaction will take place: Cu(s) + Ni2+(aq) Cu2+(aq) + Ni(s) Cell Notations for Galvanic Cells

Used to describe electrochemical cells. Anode components are listed on the left. Cathode components are listed on the right. Separated by double vertical lines. The concentration of aqueous solutions should be specified in the notation when known.

Example: Mg(s)|Mg2+(aq)||Al3+(aq)|Al(s) Mg Mg2+ + 2e (anode) Al3+ + 3e Al(cathode) Description of a Galvanic Cell The cell potential is always positive for a galvanic cell, where Ecell = E(cathode half-cell) E(anode half-cell) (as given in the table of half-cell potentials)

Anode is the negative terminal and cathode is the positive terminal. Electron flows from the anode (-) to cathode (+). Current flows from cathode(+) to anode(-). Positive ions flows from anode to cathode half-cells and negative ions flows from cathode to anode though the salt bridge.

Designation of Anode and Cathode Write balanced net ionic equation for the spontaneous cell reaction. The oxidizing agent (one with the more positive or less negative reduction potential E) will be the cathode and the other will be the anode. Oxidation occurs in anode half-cell and reduction in cathode half-cell. Anode is negative(-) and cathode is positive(+).

Cell Potential, Free Energy, and Electrical Work Maximum cell potential and free energy Directly related to the free energy difference between the reactants and the products in the cell reaction. G = nFE F = 96,485 C/mol e

Work: In any real, spontaneous process some energy is always lost (wasted) the actual work obtained is always less than the calculated (maximum) value. Concentration Cells Concentration Cell For the concentration cell depicted in the previous

diagram, indicate the anode and cathode half-cell. Calculate the cell potential for the concentration cell depicted in this diagram. Nernst Equation At 25oC. 0.0591 E =E

Calculate the cell potential for the concentration cell. Identify the anode and cathode half-cell. Concentration Cell and Determination of Ksp In another set up of concentration cell, one of the half-cells contains 1.0 M CuSO4 and the other
