Boltzmann Equation for Entropy:
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
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 one of the values of E in the electrochemical series table, but I don't understand how to find standard E when it is not in the table.
Do you have an example of a problem? I don't believe you'll never have to come up with the Eº values on your own since they are experimentally derived values. The only one might be a hydrogen electrode, which is 0V since it's the baseline.
