Write correct Nernst equation for the given galvanic cell containing both the electrodes are M/M (insoluble) salt at 25°c.: Ag(s)|AgCl(s)| KCl(M) || KBr (M)|AgBr(s)|Ag(s): [Given Ksp(AgCl) and Ksp(AgCl)]

Important thing :
For concentrated cell both electrodes are same so E not cell is always zero  and Qc is always less than one.

You should first assume any one is the cathode and the other one  is the anode. Then you can calculate the theoretical emf:
(1)  If the emf > 0, then that reaction will be spontaneous and it means you got the right cathode and right anode.

 (2) If the calculated emf < 0, it means that that reaction is not spontaneous, which means that the reverse reaction is spontaneous; that happens if you exchange the cathode and anode.

Salicylic acid is a stronger acid than benzoic acid. It is due to the fact that in salicylate ion (conjugate base of salicylic acid) intram...
