Unformatted text preview: more (+) reduction potential. When you reverse the other half-cell reaction you change the sign on the potential as you turn it into an oxidation potential. Your goal for a spontaneous cell reaction is to get a (+) cell potential. If you need to multiply one of the half-reactions to write a balanced overall equation, do NOT multiply the cell potential by that factor. GOAL 68: Key Idea: You can easily consider cells not under standard conditions using the Nernst Equation: E cell = E o cell (RT/nF) lnQ...
