Consider a cell given below


Consider a cell given below

Cu|Cu2+|| Cl—|Cl2, Pt

Write the reactions that occur at anode and cathode.


Galvanic cell: Cu|Cu2+|| Cl—|Cl2, Pt

Anode- Oxidation half-cell: Cu(s) → Cu2+ + 2e-

Cathode- Reduction half-cell: Cl2(g)+ 2e-→ 2Cl-

Thus, Cu is anode as it is getting oxidised.
