Electrode size

Postby Rhea Shah 2F » Sun Mar 15, 2020 11:32 pm

Does changing the electrode size change the standard potential of the cell?

As long as the electrode is still in the solution and has not completely degraded, it shouldn't affect voltage of a galvanic cell.

The size of the electrode should not change the potential of the cell because it is solid and the reaction quotient does not take solids or liquids into consideration
