Problem: In the concentration cell created using Ag/Ag+, what is the value of E?

FREE Expert Solution

concentration cell is an electrolytic cell that is comprised of two half-cells with the same electrodes, but different concentrations.


Ag(s)  Ag+(aq) + 1 e        E˚ = –0.80 V  Anode/Oxidation (reverse of reduction → negative sign)

 Ag+(aq) + 1 e Ag(s)         = 0.80 V   Cathode/Reduction


E°cell=E°cathode-E°anode
