# Question 1077e

Dec 30, 2017

The equation for this cell most likely is,

$A \left(s\right) + {B}^{2 +} \left(a q\right) r i g h t \le f t h a r p \infty n s {A}^{2 +} \left(a q\right) + B \left(s\right)$

Let's consider each statement in turn.

$\text{A}$ is incorrect, galvanic cells convert chemical energy (e.g. bonds) to electrical energy (e.g. voltage).

$\text{B}$ is incorrect. Although electrical energy is used, $A$ is "dissolved" and B" is deposited per the notation.

$\text{C}$ is correct. A"# is oxidized in this cell; hence it is theoretically a stronger reducing agent.

$\text{D}$ is incorrect. $A$ is oxidized in this cell; it does no oxidizing.
