A voltaic cell contains two half-cells. One half-cell contains a nickel electrode immersed in a 1.00 M Ni(NO3)2 solution. The second half-cell contains a titanium electrode immersed in a 1.00 MTi(NO3)3 solution.

 Ni2+(aq) + 2 e− → Ni(s) E⁰red  = −0.257 V Ti3+(aq) + 3 e− → Ti(s) E⁰red = −1.370 V

(a) Using the standard reduction potentials given above, predict the standard cell potential of the voltaic cell.
____V

(b) Write the overall balanced equation for the voltaic cell. (Include states-of-matter under the given conditions in your answer.)

a) Given that:

Ni2+(aq) + 2e- → Ni(s); Eored = -0.257 V

Ti3+(aq) + 3e- → Ti(s); Eored = -1.370 V

Reduction half reaction is: Ni2+(aq) + 2e- → Ni(s); Eored = -0.257 V

Oxidation half reaction is: Ti(s) → Ti3+(aq) + 3e- ; Eoox = - Eored = -( -1.370 V)

Standard cell potential for voltaic cell is given by:

Eocell = Eored + Eoox

Eocell = (-0.257 V) + (1.370 V) = 1.113 V

b) Overall balanced equation for the voltaic cell: Ni2+(aq) +Ti(s) → Ni(s) + Ti3+(aq)
