22 Potential, Work and DG E = work done by system / charge E = -w/q emf = potential (V) = work (J) / Charge(C)E = work done by system / chargeE = -w/qCharge is measured in coulombs.-w = q EFaraday = 96,485 C/mol e-q = nF = moles of e- x charge/mole e-w = -qE = -nFE = DG
23 Potential, Work and DG DGº = -nFEº if Eº > 0, then DGº < 0 spontaneousif Eº< 0, then DGº > 0 nonspontaneousIn fact, reverse is spontaneous.Calculate DGº for the following reaction:Cu+2(aq)+ Fe(s) ® Cu(s)+ Fe+2(aq)Fe+2(aq) + e-® Fe(s) Eº = 0.44 VCu+2(aq)+2e- ® Cu(s) Eº = 0.34 V

33 Preventing Corrosion Coating to keep out air and water. Galvanizing - Putting on a zinc coatHas a lower reduction potential, so it is more easily oxidized.Alloying with metals that form oxide coats.Cathodic Protection - Attaching large pieces of an active metal like magnesium that get oxidized instead.
34 Electrolysis Running a galvanic cell backwards. Put a voltage bigger than the potential and reverse the direction of the redox reaction.Used for electroplating.

37 Calculating plating Have to count charge. Measure current I (in amperes)1 amp = 1 coulomb of charge per secondq = I x tq/nF = moles of metalMass of plated metalHow long must 5.00 amp current be applied to produce 15.5 g of Ag from Ag+
38 Calculating plating Current x time = charge Charge ∕Faraday = mole of e-Mol of e- to mole of element or compoundMole to grams of compoundOr the reverse if you want time to plate
