The initial potential of the given cell has to be found. Concept introduction: In an electrolytic cell, for the generation of an electric current, an enough amount of potential difference is required. This potential difference overcomes the resistance offered by the ions and electrons present in the cell. According to the Ohm’s law, the potential difference can be expressed as the product of current flowing in the circuit and the resistance of the cell.
