Max potential difference between electrodes

Postby Nicholas Eittreim 2G » Tue Feb 02, 2016 6:35 pm

On the course reader on page 48, it says in the limit as i approaches 0, the change in potential is called the Electromotive force. What exactly is i?

Since the maximum potential difference occurs when there is no current, I think i stands for current flowing in the system.
