# Why is E°(cell) not ∆E°cell?

$$E^\circ_\mathrm{cell}$$ is the EMF of the cell for a reaction with respect to standard hydrogen electrode (SHE). So why don't we represent $$E^\circ_\mathrm{cell}$$ or $$E_\mathrm{cell}$$ by $$\Delta$$ symbol, in the same manner in which we represent $$\Delta H^\circ$$, $$\Delta G^\circ$$, $$\Delta S^\circ$$, etc., with respect to initial absolute zero temperature?

• By convention, we write $V$ or $E$ to represent a difference in potential. Adding a $\Delta$ would refer to the difference in potential difference. – Zhe Oct 7 '19 at 13:27
