What is the difference between E˚and E?

I believe E˚refers to standard conditions and E refers to nonstandard conditions.

Hi! The E nautical (with the circle) means E at standard conditions. The E, however, is just the cell potential in general under any conditions.

E˚ means that it is under standard condition which is T=298K and P=1 atm. E would then be the cell potential at a different temperature and or pressure. We can assume standard condition unless stated otherwise.

Eo is constant for each reaction, since it represents the cell reaction under very specific conditions (the standard state, 1 atm pressure and 25 oC).
E can vary, even within the same cell, as different experimental conditions impact the result of the reaction.

E˚ is the standard electrode potential under standard conditions while E is the cell potential under other conditions

E˚ is the standard and E is in a specific reaction. E˚ does not change through a reaction because the element is in its most stable state but E changes as the reaction goes on because the element may change because its not in its most stable state.

E˚ is under standard conditions such as 1 atm and 298 K while E is under any other condition.

E and E°can be calculated by the formula E = E°- （RT/nF) lnQ.

E˚is under standard conditions (pressure=1 bar, concentration= 1 mol/L, etc.)

E˚ is standard conditions, and will be given to you on a formula sheet or in the question for many reactions. E is nonstandard and has to be calculated using data.

E naut is for standard conditions while E is for non standard conditions

E˚ refers to the cell potential of a cell at standard conditions (25 degrees celsius, 1 M and 1 atm) and so it is a constant value that is given and will not change. E refers to the cell potential of a cell at any time, whether or not it's at standard conditions.

E* refers to cell potential at standard conditions, it does NOT change with amount of substance. E is just the potential of the cell under ANY conditions.
