Calculating Standard Cell Potentials

Postby Ying Yan 1F » Fri Feb 21, 2020 3:11 pm

When calculating standard cell potentials, if I multiply the one of the half equations by 2, do I multiply the corresponding standard cell potential by 2 too? Thank you!

No, you would not multiply the standard cell potential by 2 because it is considered an intensive property so it does not depend how many times the reaction has occurred.

Since standard cell potential is calculated using standard conditions, the stoichiometric coefficients do not affect it.
