Implies only that a voltmeter placed across the terminals of a cell consisting of standard hydrogen electrode and the zinc electrode would show this value of potential difference, with the zinc terminal negative with respect to that of the hydrogen electrode. An electrode potential is never a 'metal/solution potential difference', not even on some arbitrary scale. An alternative way of presenting data on cells with a standard hydrogen electrode is in terms of the reduction potential or oxidation potential of the cell reaction.

The electric field which actually affects the charge transfer kinetics is that between the electrode and the plane of closest approach of the solvated electroactive species ('outer Helmholtz plane'), as shown in Fig. 2. While the potential drop across this region generally corresponds to the major component of the polarization voltage, a further potential fall occurs in the 'diffuse double layer' which extends from the outer Hemlholtz plane into the bulk of the solution. In addition, when ions are specifically absorbed at the electrode surface (Fig.

The rates of the electrochemical processes) may be given directly by the reading on an ammeter inserted in the external circuit. If the current is a function of time, it is still possible to apply the above idea of 'flux continuity' over a succession of small time intervals. It may happen that one of the various rate processes involved in charge transport in different components of a cell, is unable to maintain as high a rate as the others. 38 Theoretical background Under these circumstances it becomes the current limiting process for the cell.
