Answer :

(i) Both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

We know, Ecell = Ecathode – Eanode

For reaction to be spontaneous, Ecell should have a positive value and ΔrGcell negative.

At equilibrium, Ecell = 0, as current stops flowing.

Or, Ecathode = Eanode

Hence, Current stops flowing when ECell = 0 because equilibrium of the cell reaction is attained.
