Main Question or Discussion Point
I know that salt bridges maintain charge, thus allowing the reaction to proceed. I was wondering if the distance of the electrodes from the salt bridge affects the voltage of the cell in any way. Thanks!
I am not convinced that's the best of wording of the salt bridge purpose (they don't 'maintain', they close the circuit and allow the charge to flow).I know that salt bridges maintain charge
Open circuit voltage - no, this is independent of the cell geometry. However, the geometry of the electrodes and size of the cell do change the internal cell resistance, so they limit maximum current battery can deliver.I was wondering if the distance of the electrodes from the salt bridge affects the voltage of the cell in any way
I think the junction potential may be fine, but the battery potential will go down.And how are they going to destroy the junction potential when they are in a completely different part of the circuit?
