Moles of Charges, Adams, Disc 1a

Postby Adams Dis 1A » Fri Feb 22, 2019 11:09 am

How would I find moles of electrons as they change each time?

In regards to the equation:
Delta G = -nFE ,
the amount of moles of electrons you need is found when balancing the half-reactions. The value of n will depend on the final result, meaning after you multiply to find the lowest stoichiometric coefficients needed to balance the entire reaction.

Basically treat n as how you have treated it thus far with balanced chemical reactions, now just also being mindful of Faraday's constant.
