The initial potential of the given cell has to be found. Concept introduction: The potential difference is the driving agent for the flow of current. In an electrolytic cell, for the generation of an electric current, a sufficient potential difference is required. The resistance offered by the ions and the electrons is overcome by the potential difference. From the Ohm’s law, a potential difference is expressed as the product of current and the resistance of the cell.
