Equilibrium Constants

Postby Sophia Dinh 1D » Fri Mar 06, 2020 12:11 am

How can you determine the standard cell potential if it's not given? Can you plug in an alternative equation?

You could use the Nernst equation depending on what else is given.

Yeah, there are plenty of equations that you can use depending on what values you're given, like E°cell = E°cathode − E°anode or the Nernst equation.

It depends on what you're given but probably you can use the Nernst equation, but it depends on if you're given enough to use that
