Reverse Reaction

Postby Brandon Tao 1K » Sun Feb 23, 2020 11:16 pm

Is a reaction within a galvanic cell, will it ever reach equilibrium and will we need to find the constants?

I think equilibrium is reached when Ecell = 0 V. This would mean that there is no net electron flow within the cell and the current has stopped.
