The reaction which occur in the Galvanic cell is MnO4−+8H++5Fe2+⟶Mn2++5Fe3++4H2OE∘MnO4−,Mn2+,H+∣Pt=1.51V and E∘Fe3+,Fe2+∣Pt=0.77V(Q) How would the emf of the cell be increased above the standard emf ?
By decreasing pH
By increasing Fe3+
By decreasing MnO4-
By increasing Mn2+
E=E∘−RT5FlnMn2+Fe3+5MnO4−H+8Fe2+5Lowering pH means increasing H+and it will make term less negative and Ecellbecomes positive.
