### Concentration cells

What are the characteristics of concentration cells and how can you tell you have a concentration cell from the problem?

### Re: Concentration cells

Concentration cell is a cell that have two identical electrodes but only different in concentration. Thus Eo should be 0 and the potential can be calculated by Nerst equation.

Return to “Appications of the Nernst Equation (e.g., Concentration Cells, Non-Standard Cell Potentials, Calculating Equilibrium Constants and pH)”
