Standard Cell Potential

Postby Jerome Mercado 2J » Wed Feb 20, 2019 11:34 pm

What is standard in Standard Cell Potential? Is it just temperature and pressure? What does it mean when it above 0?

Standard corresponds with 1 mole/L, 1 atm, and 25 degrees C

When it's above 0, it means that the flow of electron from the left half-cell to the right half-cell is spontaneous. That is, oxidation in the left half-cell and reduction in the right half-cell.
