In summary, some factors that affect the voltage of a galvanic cell include the type of wire used, the type of salt bridge, the type of elements and ions used, the amount of charge, and the ionisation energies of the electrodes. The redox potential, which is the sum of the two 1/2 reactions referenced to zero, also plays a significant role in determining the potential voltage of a cell. However, there are many other factors that can further influence the voltage of a galvanic cell.
Sorry buddy. I am just off to bed now, and was hoping for an answer before then... My thoughts are perhaps the type of wire used, if it is a good conductor and perhaps the type of salt bridge, though i am not entirely sure at all:)
Can you guys just give me some factors that affect the voltage in a voltaigc cell, i know the obvious onne that the type of elements and ions used.
This is for a chem prac, I want some factors to get me on the right track so I can select a certain factor that does change to voltage, and do more research on that specific area.
Look up redox potential, basically the sum of the two 1/2 reactions referenced to zero is the potential voltage for a cell, (but in actual terms, lots of factors further influence it.) see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_cell
