If the reactant is insoluble, then why would E cell be negative?

this site explains it really well! It has to do with the Nernst Equation and since these galvanic cells deal with concentrations of various sorts, we see the relationship between the difference in potentials and the lack of solubility.

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