p.951 Standard Reduction Potentials What is the standard potential for the electrolysis of water? Electrolysis Reactions

How many coulombs of charge are required to electrolyze 1 mol of water? Note that 6 water are consumed at the anode, but 4 are produced at the cathode. At the anode (where oxidation occurs): 6 H2O (l) O2 (g) + 4 H3O+ (aq) + 4eAt the cathode (where reduction occurs): 4 H3O+ (aq) + 4 e- 2 H2 (g) + 4 H2O (l) The net amount of water consumed per every 4 electrons is 2 molecules. 1.0 mol H2O

calculated from standard reduction potentials. This excess potential is called an overvoltage. This additional voltage is needed to overcome limitations in electron transfer rate at the interface between electrode and solution. Balancing Redox Reactions When KMnO4 (potassium permanganate) is mixed with Na2C2O4 (sodium oxalate) under acidic conditions, Mn+2(aq) ions and CO2(g) form.

The unbalanced chemical equation is: KMnO4(aq) + Na2C2O4(aq) Mn+2(aq) + CO2(g) + K+(aq) + Na+(aq) K+ and Na+ are spectator ions, so we can ignore them at this point. MnO4- (aq) + C2O4-2(aq) Mn+2(aq) + CO2(g) Half-Reactions MnO4- (aq) + C2O4-2(aq) Mn+2(aq) + CO2(g) Reduction reaction

potential of a Au+3/Au/Mg+2/Mg cell? The half-reaction with the more positive standard reduction potential occurs at the cathode as reduction. The half-reaction with the more negative standard reduction potential occurs at the anode as oxidation. Nernst

Picture from: www.corrosion-doctors.org/ Biographies/images/ Is potential always the same? Standard conditions: 1 atm, 25oC, 1 M What will influence the potential of a cell? Mathematical Relationships: Nernst The Nernst Equation:

E = Eo - RT ln Q nF Eo = standard potential of the cell R = Universal gas constant = 8.3145 J/mol*K T = temperature in Kelvin n = number of electrons transferred F = Faradays constant = 96,483.4 C/mol Q = reaction quotient (concentration of anode divided by

the concentration of the cathode) Cu+2 + Zn(s) Zn+2 + Cu(s) Q = Applying the Nernst Equation Cu+2 + Zn(s) Zn+2 + Cu(s) This cell is operating at 25oC with 1.00x10-5M Zn2+ and 0.100M Cu2+? Predict if the voltage will be higher or lower than the standard potential E = Eo - RT ln Q

nF Cu+2 + Zn(s) Zn+2 + Cu(s) E = Eo - RT ln Q nF Eo = standard potential of the cell Zn+2 + 2e- -> Zn -0.76 V Cu+2 + 2e- -> Cu 0.34 V

R = Universal gas constant = 8.3145 J/mol*K T = temperature in Kelvin n = number of electrons transferred 25oC + 273 = K n = F = Faradays constant = 96,483.4 C/mol Q = reaction quotient (concentration of anode divided by the concentration of the cathode)

Q = [Zn+2]/[Cu+2] 1.00x10-5M Zn2+ and 0.100M Cu2 Were your predictions correct? Ampere Picture from: musee-ampere.univ-lyon1.fr/ The Units of Electrochemistry

Coulomb 1 coulomb equals 2.998 x 109 electrostatic units (eu) eu is amount of charge needed to repel an identical charge 1 cm away with unit force Charge on one electron is -1.602 x 10-19 coulomb Problem: An aluminum ion has a +3 charge. What is this value in coulombs? magnitude of charge is same at that of e-, opposite sign

3 x 1.602 x10-19 = 4.806 x 10-19 coulomb Key Point: electrons or ions charges can be measured in coloumbs The Units of Electrochemistry Ampere Amount of current flowing when 1 coulomb passes a given point in 1 second Units of Amperes are Coulombs per second Current (I) x time (C/s x s) gives an amount of charge.

Problem: How much current is flowing in a wire in which 5.0 x 1016 electrons are flowing per second? The charge transferred each second = (5.0 x 1016 electrons/sec) x (1.602 x 10-19 coulomb/electron) = 8.0 x 10-3 coulombs/sec = amps The Units of Electrochemistry

Ampere Amount of current flowing when 1 coulomb passes a given point in 1 second Units of Amperes are Coulombs per second Current (I) x time (C/s x s) gives an amount of charge. We can express electron or ION flow in amps! Problem: If 1 mol Al+3 ions passes a given point in one hour, what is the current flow?

1 hour = 3600 seconds; Al+3 charge is 4.806 x 10-19 coulomb 1 mol Al +3 ions 6.022 x 1023 Al +3 ions 4.806 x 10-19 coulomb 1 hour

Hour 1 mol Al +3 ions 1 Al+3 ion 3600 sec = 80 C/s = 80 A
