Is Farady's law applicable to electrochemical cell

  1. Jan 15, 2013 #1
    Farady's law are derived for electrolysis. My question is the same rule can be applied in the analysis of electrochemical cell? I think those two cell (electrolytic and electrochemical) are just opposite functional to each other.

    Yes, you can use it to calculate the ammount of electrode consumed in generating a certain current.
