why in this question Fe is taken as anode and zinc as cathode whereas according to electrochemical series Fe lies below zinc??? Also mention the soln for the above ques

According to given reaction, anode is zinc where oxidation takes place and cathode is Fe wher reduction takes place.
We have to reverse both half cell reactions as oxidation potentials are given.
Zn2+ (aq) + 2e- → Zn(s) , Eº = -0.76 V
Fe2+(aq) + 2e- → Fe(s) , Eº = -0.44 V
Half cell reaction with more positive reduction potential will reverse the half cell reaction with less positive reduction potential.
Hence emf of the cell is,
Eº (RHS) - Eº (LHS) = Eº(cell)
-0.76 V - (- 0.44 V) = 0.32 V
Thus, option (b) is the correct option.

- What is a cell constant
- Electrochemical series are the series of element in which the elements are arranged in ........order of their reducing strength
- Why is the value of standard electrode potential of Mn, Co,Ni,Zn more negative than expected? Is the standard electrode potential more negative than expected for cobalt? (according to graph pg217 NCERT chemistry)
- why does copper have positive electrode potential? it has same inthalpy of ionisation(2) as nickel(-2121) so it should also have a negative value
- The discharge potential of Chloride ions is less than hydroxide ions . what does this line mean and why chloride has less discharge potential.
- Please answer this question.
- A Cu rod is dipped in 0.1M CuSo4 solution.Calculate the potential of this half cell if CuSo4 undergoes 90% dissociation at 25 C.
- Please give the series of increasing ease of getting discharged at anode?
