Cell potential

Postby Clement Ng » Wed Feb 21, 2018 8:06 pm

When cell potential is negative since anode potential is larger than cathode, the reaction does not favor products. Can we assume that the reaction favors reactants then? (chapter 14, #31.b)

Yea in that case we say that the reverse reaction is favored.
