A galvanic cell has an electrical potential of 1.1V.

Question:

A galvanic cell has an electrical potential of 1.1V. If an opposing potential of 1.1V is applied to this cell, what will happen to the cell reaction and current flowing through the cell?

Solution:

The cell reaction stops and there will be no flow of current through the cell when the opposing potential becomes equal to electrical potential. Therefore no chemical reaction takes place.
