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.
