IIt JEE Revision Concentration cells

Concentration cells.

Concentration Cells are electrochemical cells that have two equivalent half-cells of the same material differing only in concentrations. One can calculate the potential developed by such cells using the Nernst Equation. A concentration cell produces a voltage in the process of reaching equilibrium, which will occur when the concentration in both cells are equal.

Concentration cell methods of chemical analysis compare a solution of known concentration with an unknown, determining the concentration of the unknown via the Nernst Equation.
