Q. 28

Can absolute electrode potential of an electrode be measured?

Answer :

No, the absolute electrode potential of an electrode cannot be measured independently. A half-cell reaction never occurs all by itself. Two half-cells together make an electrolytic reaction possible. We can only measure the difference in electrode potential between the two half-cells. We can also measure electrode potential difference with respect to a standard electrode.
