How Does Concentration Affect Cell Potential

Postby 605168557 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 1:05 pm

In general what is the significance of the dependence on cell potential on concentration? Do we just use Le Chatelier's Principle or is there some other explanation for the relation between increasing/decreasing concentrations and the Ecell?

You use Nernst equation

There are also different forms of this equation, but they all have similar derivations
