The potential of quinhydrone electrode at 25 C is 0.6992 V whereas that of calomel electrode is 0.2438 V. The total potential can be written as E = E(quin. or cal.) - E(2H+/H2). Potential of the hydrogen electrode in a respective solution will be E = -0.059*lg(H+). Thus, E(quin.) = 0.6992 V - (-0.059*lg(H+)) or E(cal.) = 0.2438 V - (-0.059*lg(H+)). However, to compare these calculations with some practical results we need to have some practical results. Thus, please give your data and I will compare them.
