We are going to wrap up our AP Chem content today.  The final concept we will explore is that of cells in non-standard conditions and electrolytic cells.


Warm Up 87

Magnesium metal will react with acid (hydrogen ions) in a vigorous reaction.

(a) Write the cell diagram for this reaction and calculate the standard cell potential for this cell.

(b) Write the balanced chemical equation for the REDOX process.

(c) Identify the species that is oxidized in this reaction and justify how you know.

(d) Would you expect the reaction between nickel metal and acid to be more or less vigorous?  Explain.
