Concentration cells

Postby Kim Tran 1J » Mon Mar 11, 2019 1:54 pm

What is a concentration cell? How is this different from a galvanic cell and an electrolytic cell?

it's a type of electrolytic cell that has the same electrode on both sides. It relies on concentration gradients to run; so it's not as powerful as normal galvanic cells

What do we need to know about concentrations cells? Will we asked to calculate anything? or just the concept?
