Problems:
1. An early method of producing aluminum
metal was the reaction of aluminum salts
with sodium metal:
Al3+ + 3Na(s)
Al(s) + 3Na+ E = +1.05 V
What is G for this reaction
a) -304 kJ
d) +202 kJ
b) -101 kJ
e) +304 kJ
c) +101 kJ
2. Calculate Keq for this reaction.

G and K

G = -nFE

G = -RT lnk

c) +0.0011 V

G = -nFE
G= -(3mol e-)(96500 J/Vmol e-)(1.05V)
=-303,975 J
G=-304 KJ

a) +105 kJ
d) +52 kJ
b) -105 kJ
e) -312 kJ
c) +312 kJ

G = -nFE
G= -(2mol e-)(96500 J/Vmol e-)(-,54V)
