The Cell Potential Calculator is designed to assist with determining the electrical potential between cathode and anode pairs in electrochemical cells, whether in single or combined configurations. This calculator offers Basic and Advanced modes, helping users accurately calculate either individual or overall cell potentials.
Calculator Modes
 Basic Calculator: For calculating the cell potential of a single electrochemical cell using cathode and anode potentials.
 Advanced Calculator: For calculating the combined cell potential of two electrochemical cells by summing the potentials of each cell.
User Guide
Basic Calculator
This mode is suitable for calculating the cell potential of a single cell based on the anode and cathode potentials.
Field 
Description 
Cathode Potential (V)
