A galvanic cell which makes use of the following reaction at 298K. $Cr_2O_7^{2-}+14H^++6Fe^{2+}\rightarrow 2Cr^{3+}+6Fe^{3+}+7H_2O$.Given : $E^{\large\circ}(Cr_2O_7^{2-},H^+,Cr^{3+}|Pt)=1.33V;E^{\large\circ}(Fe^{3+},Fe^{2+}|Pt)=0.77V$.The contribution made to the standard emf of the cell by reduction half-cell is

$\begin{array}{1 1}0.77V\\-0.77V\\1.33V\\-1.33V\end{array} $

Can you answer this question?

Answer : 1.33V
In the given reaction $Cr_2O_7^{2-}$ is reduced to $Cr^{3+}$.Hence ,contribution made to the standard emf of the cell is 1.33V
