## About Cell Potential Calculator (Formula)

The cell potential calculator uses a simple formula to calculate the potential difference between the cathode and anode of an electrochemical cell. This is given by:

**E_c = E_ca – E_a**

where:

- E_c is the cell potential, measured in volts (V)
- E_ca is the cathode potential, measured in volts (V)
- E_a is the anode potential, measured in volts (V)

In an electrochemical cell, reduction occurs at the cathode, while oxidation occurs at the anode. The potential difference between the two electrodes determines the flow of electrons between them, which is what drives the electrochemical reactions in the cell.

The cell potential calculator provides a useful tool for scientists and engineers to estimate the potential difference between the cathode and anode of an electrochemical cell and to understand the electrochemical reactions that take place within the cell. By entering the cathode and anode potentials into the calculator, users can quickly calculate the cell potential and better understand the electrochemical behavior of the system.
