Balancing REDOX reactions

When you balance the two equations for the number of electrons, would you multiply the E standard of the two equations by the factor you used to balance the equation, or do they remain the same?

E would remain the same, it's not affected by the amount of electrons

Because Eo is an intensive property, voltage difference is the same and does not depend on how many times the reaction occurs.

The value of E should be the same after this is undergone.. there is no need to multiply by the factor.

You would not need to multiply E by the factor, but if you were to switch the equation, the E would change sign.

remember not to multiply E by a factor when you are balancing the equations. Unlike H and S, you do not multiply E by the coefficients you use to balance the equations, since E is intensive.
