The cell diagram for the lead-acid cell that is used in automobile and truck batteries is Pb(s) l PbSO4 (s) l H2SO4 (aq) l PbO2(s), PbSO4(s) l Pb (s)where the comma between PbO2 (s) and PbSO4 (s) denotes a heterogeneous mixture of the two solids and the right-hand lead electrode is nonreactive.
a)Write a balanced equation for the net cell reaction:
b)Look up standard potentials for the oxidation and the reduction reactions, then calculate the value of E0cell.
c) Calculate the value of deltaG0rxn
d) Calculate the value of Ecell at 25C is [H2SO4] = 10.0M
e) How many lead-acid cells are in a 12 V car battery? Round to the nearest integer.
