    Difference between emf and standard electrode potential
    One is under standard conditions.

    I'll let you try to work out which one.

    Difference between emf and standard electrode potential
    EMF: Electromotive force. The difference in *electric potential between any 2 electrodes in a fully set up Daniel cell.

    standard electrode potential: the difference in electrical potential between one electrode and hydrogen electrode under standard conditions(hydroden electrode is actually made up of platinum)

    conditions are:
    *temperature of 298K
    *[H+] = 1moldm^-3 in the solution
    * H2 gas pressure is 100kPa
    *use platinum electrode

    *the individual electric potential values used to calculate the EMF were done under standard conditions but in practice the EMF can change if you alter the conditions.
