### Cell potential

Does the value of the cell potential/E change if the value of your stoichiometric coefficient of one reactant changes?

### Re: Cell potential

Can you specify what you mean by changing the "stoichiometric coefficient of one reactant changes"? Will the equation still be balanced if you change only one reactant's coefficient?

### Re: Cell potential

No, cell potentials do not change based on stoichiometric coefficients. This is because a standard reduction potential is an intensive property, meaning that its value does not change based upon on the quantity of electrons/species reacting.
