Question 3

An external direct-current power supply is connected to two platinum electrodes immersed in a beaker containing

1.0 M CuSO4(aq) at 25C, as shown in the diagram above. As the cell operates, copper metal is deposited onto

one electrode and O2(g) is produced at the other electrode. The two reduction half-reactions for the overall

reaction that occurs in the cell are shown in the table below.

(a) On the diagram, indicate the direction of electron flow in the wire.

The electron flow in the wire is from the right toward the left (counterclockwise).

for the correct direction.

(b) Write a balanced net ionic equation for the electrolysis reaction that occurs in the cell.

for all three products.

One point is earned

for balancing the equation.

(c) Predict the algebraic sign of G for the reaction. Justify your prediction.

The sign of G would be positive because

the reaction is NOT spontaneous.

2007 SCORING COMMENTARY

Question 3

Overview

This question analyzed an electrolysis experiment. It evaluated students skills in a number of areas, including

electrochemistry, stoichiometry, thermodynamics, and gas laws.

Sample: 3A

Score: 10

This response earned all 10 points: 1 for part (a), 2 for part (b), 1 for part (c), 2 for part (d), 2 for part (e), and 2

for part (f). Acceptable units for G in part (d) include kJ, kJ mol1, J, J mol1, CV, and CV mol1.

Sample: 3B

Score: 6

The point was not earned in part (a) because the direction of electron flow is incorrect. In part (b) the equation for

the electrolysis reaction is reversed and also is not balanced, so no points were earned. Both points were earned in

part (d) because the calculations are consistent with the reversed net-ionic equation obtained in part (b). The point

was not earned in part (c) because the response is inconsistent with the calculated E. (Generally, part (c) was

scored after part (d) so that consistency with the E calculated could be checked. Credit could be earned for

stating that G was negative only if this answer was justified based on a positive E.) All points were earned

in parts (e) and (f).

Sample: 3C

Score: 3

The point was earned in part (a). The points were not earned in part (b) because the stoichiometry of the equation

is incorrect, and the equation is reversed. The point was earned in part (c): the correct sign of G is given and

justified based on the observation that the reaction is not spontaneous. The points were not earned in part (d)

because E is calculated incorrectly, and the value used for n is incorrect. In part (e) the calculation of q omits one

of the conversion factors (60 s/1 min), so the first point was not earned; however, the calculation of the mass of

Cu using this incorrect number of coulombs is done correctly, so the second point was earned. The points were

not earned in part (f) because the volume of O2 calculated is that for 1 mol O2 , not for the amount of O2 that

would be produced under the conditions given.
