I am doing a chemistry extended experimental investigation on the variables affecting a Daniell Cell's voltage. I am required to understand the reasoning behind voltage increase and decrease for particular conditions. I have done extensive research, but am unable to find a decent explanation that does not go into too much physics and complexity. Please keep in mind that this is a CHEMISTRY investigation.
I would like to know why temperature increase in solutions causes a slight voltage increase (at least initially), also why the concentrations of the solutions would affect voltage. For example, increasing Cu2+ at the site of reduction and reducing Zn2+ at the site of oxidation would (I believe) increase voltage.
Please if possible, give me some sort of an analogy or way of visualizing what exactly is going on. I appreciate this very much!
