Galvanic Cells

Postby AMahadi » Mon Feb 24, 2020 9:19 pm

If we calculate a standard potential and the value comes out to be negative, does that mean that it's not a galvanic cell?

Yes, galvanic cells always have a positive cell potential.

It would not be a galvanic cell of it is negative. that would suck the energy out of say, your phone battery instead of charging it.
