Calculate the volume of oxygen produced (measured at standard temperature and pressure - STP) at the anode during the electrolysis of sodium sulfate solution, if the electrolytic cell is operated at a current of 2.50 amperes for 45 minutes.

F = 9.65 x 104 C mol-1 (or 96,500 C mol-1). The molar volume of a gas at STP = 22.4 L mol-1 the two possible reactions at the anode are;

O2(g) + 2H2O(l) + 4e- 4OH-(aq) E = 0.40V

SO42- (aq) + 4H+(aq) + 2e- 2H2SO3(aq) + H2O(l) E = 0.20V

Solutions

Expert Solution

Using Faraday's law

Mass =ZQ

Mass = Mit/nF

Mole = it/nF

=2.5×45×60/4×96500

Mole = 0.0175 mol

Volume produced = 0.0175×22.4

= 0.392 L

A 3"-diameter, 5"-long gas-piston assembly contains air at STP. (STP: Standard Temperature and Pressure conditions, 300K and 1 atm. At these conditions the air density is approximately 1.2kg/m3.) Calculate the necessary piston displacement in order to increase the pressure to 45 atm (typical of a diesel engine) varying linearly with displacement (i.e. the pressure varies linearly with displacement) during an adiabatic compression that will increase the gas’ internal energy by 1.2kJ.

For the purposes of this problem, the quantity produced (?) will be measured in units of hundreds of customers per month. Prices and costs will be measured in “dollars per drinker”. “Dollars per drinker” is a measure of the price (or cost) for the mixture of beer, cocktails, and hard alcohol consumed by an average patron on an average night. Note that the units do not affect your method of solving the profit-maximization problem as long as the units are...
