Halide ions can be deposited at a silver anode, the reaction
Suppose that a cell was formed by immersing a silver anode
in an analyte solution that was 0.0250 M Cl–, Br–, and I–
ions and connecting the half-cell to a saturated calomel cathode via a salt
(a) Which halide would form first and at what potential? Is
the cell galvanic or electrolytic?
(c) Repeat part (b) for I– and Cl–.
(d) Repeat part (b) for Br– and Cl–.
