Need help for electrochemistry question!!Watch
Could someone help me describe the influence that non-standard conditions have on corrosion in terms of standard electrode potentials. Any help would be great, even a link would be appreciated.
But using the Nernst equation you can see that the value of the electrode potential depends on concentrations and temperature and that non-spontaneous processes may become feasible under non-standard conditions.
Corrosion is a redox process where the metal gets oxidised and something in the environment (usually oxygen) gets reduced.
