Flashcards in 23.5 - Predictions from electrode potentials Deck (3):
1

State the limitations of predictions for feasibility based on standard electrode values

Reaction rate
Concentration
Non-standard conditions used

2

Explain how reaction rate is a limitation

The reaction may have a slow rate with high activation energy so may not occur

3

Explain how concentration is a limitation

The concentration may not be 1 mol dm-3, changing the standard electrode potential value (and shifting the equilibrium)
