Class 11 Chemistry Redox Reactions Electrode potential

Electrode potential

Electrode potential is defined as “potential difference set up between electrode and electrolyte of same beaker”.

It is of two types:

  • Reduction potential: Tendency of solution to get reduced.
  • Oxidation potential: Tendency of electrode to get oxidized.

Factors on which electrode potential depends:

  • Concentration of ions in solution.
  • Nature of metal and its ions.

Electromotive force

It is the potential difference between two electrodes when no current flows through the circuit.
