A galvanic cell is constructed by wiring a vanadium

A galvanic cell is constructed by wiring a vanadium electrode bathed in 1.0 M V^2+ (aq) to a mercury electrode bathed in 1.0 M Hg^2+ (aq), with the two solutions connected by a salt bridge. Consider the two half reactions listed below. What is the cell voltage for this device? V^2+(aq) + 2e^- --->V (s) E° = -1.130 V vs SHE Hg^2+(aq) + 2e^- --->Hg (l) E° = +0.911 V vs SHE Select one: a. -2.041 V b. +2.041 V c. -1.020 V d. +0.219 v e. -0.219 V
