Unformatted text preview: standard electrodes. Ecell=E(right cathode) - E(left anode) Standard Hydrogen Electrode- equilibrium established on surface of inert metal (Pt) between H30+ ions and H2 molecules at 1 bar. Potential is taken to be zero. G=-zFE It Ecell is positive, it is a working cell Cell Notation: Electrode (Anode)/species in solution species/Electrode (Cathode) Battery- a self-contained group of voltaic cells arranged in a series (+to -) so that their individual voltages are added up Primary- they cannot be recharged, alkanine, mercury, Secondary-can be recharged to reverse reaction...
