Difficult

$K_{sp}$ and $E_{cell}$

APCHEM-KEELXC

At constant temperature, acid is added to increase the solubility of a particular solid in the lab.

Which of the following explains how this affects the overall $E^o_{cell}$?

A

The $E^o_{cell}$ increases.

B

The $E^o_{cell}$ decreases.

C

There is no change in the $E^o_{cell}$ because the $K_{sp}$ will not change for the solid.

D

There is no change in the $E^o_{cell}$ because dissolving does not involve oxidation or reduction.
