what is the difference between E cell and E0 cell??
E0cell is the standard electrode potential of cell i.e potential under standard condition when concentration of oxidised and reduced form is unity and temperature is 298 K.
It can be represented as:
E0cell = Eocathode-Eoanode
Ecell is the cell potential under normal condition . It is calculated by Nernst equation and give dependence of Ecell on concentration and temperature.
Ecell = Ecathode-Eanode
Nernst equation is written as follows in general. Ecell = E0cell –RT/nF(ln[pdt]/[react]) here conc. of ion in aqueous form is taken as for pure solid and liquid conc. Is taken as
For eg for Daniel cell Zn/Zn2+ (C1)// Cu2+(c2)/Cu
Overall cell reaction is- Zn(s) + Cu2+(aq) →Zn2+(aq)+ Cu(s) here in pdt conc [Zn2+] is taken and in reactant [Cu2+] conc is taken.
