potential vs voltage

Postby Sarah Blake-2I » Fri Feb 28, 2020 10:15 pm

Is potential difference the same as voltage? And does Ecell mean potential difference?

Potential difference is the same as voltage. Ecell is the measure of the potential difference between two half cell reactions in a redox reaction.

Also, the max potential is when no voltage has passed.
