A standard electrode potential is measured when you start with exactly 1 mole of chromium 3 in the solution. In chromium 3 sulphate, each molecule contains 2 chromium atoms, thus, each mole of chromium 3 sulphate molecules contains 2 moles of chromium atoms, but you only want 1 mole of chromium atoms, then how many moles of chromium 3 sulphate do you need? Well, half a mole. If the mass of a mole of chromium 3 sulphate is 300g or whatever, then how grams are there in half a mole of chromium 3 sulphate?

Thanks a lot! But do we want only one mole of Chromium ions? What's the reason for that?

Yea we do. The electrode potential of a cell varies with the concentration. The higher the concentration, the more they push (or pull) against the electrode and thus the electrode potential varies. Hence, chemists need to agree on a standard concentration to measure the potential difference with, it just so happens that 1 mol is the concentration they chose to be the standard.
