cell notation is a shorthand way of writing a chemical reaction that occurs inside an electrochemical cell.


  • Cell notation is written from anode to cathode.
  • The left side of the cell notation represents oxidation (anode) reaction.
  • The right side of the cell notation represents reduction (cathode) reaction.

For the following electrochemical cell

Cu(s)|Cu2+(aq, 0.0155 M) || Ag+(aq, 2.50 M)|Ag(s)

write the net cell equation. Phases are optional. Do not include the concentrations.

Calculate the following values at 25.0°C using standard potentials as needed.

cell =                                                  ΔG°   rxn =

Ecell =                                                    ΔG      rxn =
