Unformatted text preview: In part two of the lab we measured the cell potential at different concentrations. An increased concentration means that the voltage also increases. (More interactions between molecules.) Also, having a higher concentration of reactants rather than products creates a higher cell potential. We compared our measured cell potential to the ones calculated by nearsts equation and they came out very similar. Our values increased and decreased the same amount as the calculated, but from a slightly different standard potential. We concluded that cell potential increases with increasing temperature and concentration (esp of reactants)....
