electromotive force vs cell potential vs voltage

Postby Anushi Patel 1J » Fri Feb 22, 2019 7:32 pm

Can someone explain the difference between electromotive force, cell potential, and voltage? I'm a bit confused about the theory behind the Galvanic cell.

I had the same question, because I know how to find cell potential using the potential (E)=E(cathode)-E(anode).However, I'm not sure about the others?
