### Predicting Standard Potential

So I understand that to get the standard potential of the cell you need to break it up into half reactions and find the standard cell potential of each reaction and then use the formula Ecell=Ecathode-Eanode. Given just the cell diagram, I do not understand how to find each standard E. I can find on...

### Re: degeneracy W

So S=klnW, but how do you find W? I get that its the number of micro states, but how do we know the number of micro states? Is it based on if the molecule is linear or diatomic or nonlinear or is there another equation?
