Question

# Find the mass of silver deposited when a current of 1.5 ampere is passed through silver nitrate solution for 5 min.(Atomic mass of $$Ag$$ is $$108$$ g)

Solution

## Molar mass of $$Ag$$ $$=108$$ g mol$$^{-1}$$1 Faraday $$=96500$$ C$$Q=i \times t=1.5$$ $$\times 5\times 60=450$$ CoulombsWeight of the substance deposited $$=ZQ$$$$Z=\cfrac{M}{nF}$$    n-factor of $$AgNO_{3}$$=1$$Z=\cfrac{108}{1 \times 96500}$$Weight of the substance=$$\cfrac{108}{96500} \times 450=\cfrac{54 \times 90}{9650}=0.5$$ gPhysics
