The Nernst equation becomes ε =0 − RT n 1 ↑ F ln [ Na] 1 [ Na] 2 = − RT F ln [ Na] 1 [ Na] 2 (30.8) So we see that if [ Na] 1 6 =[ Na] 2 then a potential will de-velop. (a) What is the potential of a sodium concentration cell if the di f erence in concentration it a factor of 10? how about 100? how about 1000?
