ELECTROCHEMISTRY AND ION CONCENTRATION

Activity dependence of cell voltage:

Measurement of galvanic cell potentials away from the standard state provides a convenient method for measuring ion activity and activity coefficient. As ion concentration is varied in a half-cell to vary ion activity. Equilibrium position of the half cell reduction reaction changes and that causes a change in the half-cell potential. The relationship between the activity and half-cell potential is given by the Nernst equation:

for the general half-cell reduction reaction:

 aA+bB+ne-→cC+dD

Cells at equilibrium:

When a cell is at equilibrium, Ecell=0 (the 'flat battery' condition) and Q=K, the equilibrium constant for the reaction (see Topic C1). This gives the expression: which allows calculation of equilibrium constants (see Topic C1) for cell reactions from calculated or measured values.
