EMF Of Galvanic Cell

EMF Of Galvanic Cell: In a Galvanic Cell, the electrons in the outer circuit flow from the electrode of higher oxidation potential (Anode) to the electrode of lower oxidation potential (Cathode). The existence of such a potential difference called Electromotive Force (EMF) causes the conventional current to flow from cathode to anode and is defined as “the difference between the electrode potentials of two half cells of a Galvanic Cell”. It is also known as Cell Potential (Ecell). Therefore, Ecell = Oxidation Potential of Anode – Oxidation Potential of Cathode As per the recommendations of IUPAC, the Ecell is expressed … Continue reading EMF Of Galvanic Cell
