### E° vs E

What's the difference between these two?

E°is the cell potential under standard conditions, while E is under non-standard conditions.

Standard conditions are at 25 degrees Celsius and 1M or 1 bar/atm.

Enaught is a fixed value for one reaction under standard condition, while E can vary as temperature or concentration of the substances in a reaction changes.

### Re: E° vs E

Ecell = cell potential at non-standard state conditions which can be derived from Ecell = Eocell - (RT/nF) ln Q
Eocell = standard state cell potential and can be derived from Eocell=RTlnk

E° is the cell potential under standard conditions (i.e. 298K, 1 atm, and 1M).

The standard cell potential can be figured out through given values and occurs at standards conditions. The cell potential can occur at any condition and can be figured out if you know the standard cell potential and the value of Q.

Whenever you see the not symbol, it means that it is under standard conditions.
