Chapter 14 Electrode Potentials
14-1 Redox Chemistry & Electricity Oxidation: a loss of electrons to an oxidizing agent Reduction: a gain of electrons from a reducing agent Reduction-Oxidation reaction (redox reaction) ex: Half-reactions: re: Fe 3+ + e - Fe 2+ ox: V 2+ V 3+ + e -
1. Chemistry & Electricity Electrochemistry: the study of the interchange of chemical & electrical energy. Electric charge (q) is measured in coulombs(C). The magnitude of the charge of a single electron (or proton) is 1.602×10 － 19 C. A mole of electrons therefore has a charge of (1.602×10 － 19 C)(6.022×10 23 /mol)= 9.649×10 4 C/mol, which is called the Faraday constant, F. Example at p.310
2. Electric current is proportional to the rate of a redox reaction I (ampere; A) = electric current = a flow of 1 coulomb per second = 1C/s Example at p. 310: Sn e - Sn 2+ at a constant rate of 4.24 mmole/h. How much current flows into the solution?
3. Voltage & Electrical Work wireqIE hose H2OH2OV H2O P H2O The difference in electric potential between two points measures the work that is needed (or can be done) when electrons move from one point to another.
Ask yourself at p.312 Consider the redox reaction
14.2 Galvanic Cells Chemical reaction spontaneously occurs to produce electrical energy. Ex: lead storage battery When the oxidizing agent & reducing agent are physically separated, e transfer through an external wire. generates electricity.generates electricity

14-3 Standard Potentials Cell potential ( E cell ) a)The voltage difference between the electrodes. electromotive force (emf) b)can be measured by voltmeter. c)emf of a cell depends on The nature of the electrodes & [ions] Temp.
14-3 Standard Potentials S.H.E. (standard hydrogen electrode ) It is impossible to measure E cell of a half- rxn directly, need a reference rxn. standard hydrogen electrode:
The standard reduction potential (E 0 ) for each half-cell is measured by an experiment shown in idealized form in Fig.14-6.

AgCl (s) + e - Ag (s) + Cl V V in saturated KCl (formal potentional) E 0 = 0.222V S.H.E.║ Cl- (aq, 1M) | AgCl (s) | Ag(s) E 0’ (formal potential) = V (in saturated KCl) S.H.E.║ KCl (aq, saturated) | AgCl (s) | Ag(s) Formal potential
Formal Potential Ex: Ce 4+ + e - Ce 3+ E°=1.6V with H + A - E°≠1.61V Formal potential: (E° ’ ) The potential for a cell containing a [reagent] ≠1M. Ex: Ce 4+ /Ce 3+ in 1M HCl E° ’ =1.28V
E is the reduction potential at the specified concentrations n: the number of electrons involved in the half-reaction R: gas constant ( V coul deg -1 mol -1 ) T: absolute temperature F: Faraday constant (96,487 coul eq -1 ) at 25°C RT/F= The Nernst Equation The net driving force for a reaction is expressed by the Nernst eqn. Nernst Eqn for a Half-Reaction where

Dependence of potential on pH Many redox reactions involved protons, and their potentials are influenced greatly by pH.

14-5 E 0 and the Equilibrium Constant
E = 0 and Q = K E 0 > 0 K > 1, E 0 < 0, K < 1 At equilibrium
Ex: One beaker contains a solution of M KMnO 4, M MnSO 4, and M H 2 SO 4 ; and a second beaker contains M FeSO 4 and M Fe 2 (SO 4 ) 3. The 2 beakers are connected by a salt bridge and Pt electrodes are placed one in each. The electrodes are connected via a wire with a voltmeter in between. What would be the potential of each half-cell (a) before reaction and (b) after reaction? What would be the measured cell voltage (c) at the start of the reaction and (d) after the reaction reaches eq.? Assume H 2 SO 4 to be completely ionized and equal volumes in each beaker.
Ans: 5Fe +2 + MnO H + 5Fe +3 + Mn H 2 O Pt | Fe +2 (0.15 M), Fe +3 (0.003 M)║MnO 4 - (0.02 M), Mn +2 (0.005 M), H + (1.00 M) | Pt (a) E Fe = E o Fe(III)/Fe(II) – (0.059/1) log [Fe +2 ]/[Fe +3 ] = – log (0.150)/( × 2) = V E Mn = E o MnO4 - / Mn +2 – (0.059/5)log [Mn +2 ]/[MnO 4 - ][H + ] 8 = 1.51 – 0.059/5 log (0.005)/(0.02)(1.00) 8 = 1.52 V (b) At eq., E Fe = E Mn, 可以含鐵之半反應來看， 先找出平衡時兩個鐵離子的濃度，得 E Fe = – log (0.05)/(0.103) = V (c) E cell = E Mn - E Fe = 1.52 – = V (d) At eq., E Fe = E Mn, 所以 E cell = 0 V
