As we have learned

Concentration Cells -

A cell in which electrical energy is produced by the transference of a substance from a system of high concentration to one at low at low concentration is known as concentration cells.

-

 

 This is concentration cell 

Mn_{2m}^{2+} \rightarrow Mn _{5.2 \times 10^{-2}M}^{2+}

E_{cell } = E^{0}-\frac{0.0591}{2}log \left ( \frac{5.2 \times 10^{-2}}{2} \right )= 0.047

 

 

 

 


Option 1)

0.47 V

Option 2)

0.047 V

Option 3)

0.053 V

Option 4)

0.53 V
