Need help understanding standard hydrogen electrode

Postby Andy Lechuga 2C » Thu Feb 09, 2017 11:31 pm

I'm not sure what (SHE) is and what is its purpose in understanding cell potential. Can someone why -2V is more strongly reducing than -1V.

Not sure if this answers your question entirely, but I believe the purpose of the standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) is to have a basis to compare all other electrodes to.
