2Cr(s) +3Cl2(g) ⇔2Cr3+(aq) +6Cl−(aq)

Select one:

a. −1215 kJ

Answer #1

2Cr(s) + 3Cl2(g) ⇔2Cr3+(aq) +6Cl(aq)

E0rxn = Ero - Elo

Ero = standard electrode potential of reduction of half reaction (Cl2 undergoes reduction)

Elo = standard electrode potential of oxidation of half reaction (Cr undergoes oxidation)

E0rxn = 1.36 - (-0.74) = 2.1V

Standard Gibbs free energy (ΔGo) = - nF E0rxn

n = no. of moles of electrons involved in the reaction = 6 in our case as each mole of Cr loses 3 moles of electrons.

ΔGo = - 6 X96485 X 2.1V = - 1215.711 KJ
