voltaic cells in nonstandard conditions, how does concentration of solm's effect the value of Ecell. I understand that as concentration increases so does the Ecell value but why?
The half cell is
E = E^{o}  0.0592 log Q where Q stands for K at equilibrium and K = (ox)/(red).
Therefore, as the concentration of the oxidized materials and/or the reduced materials changes, so does Q and that changes E^{o} from nonstandard conditions. The 0.0592 constant is made up of other constants, 2.303 RT/F
