What is n when finding Standard Gibbs Rxn

Postby Sophia Kim 1C » Wed Feb 21, 2018 3:33 am

When finding the standard Gibbs Rxn we use the equation DeltaGn = -nFE. But just to clarify, it states that n is the electrons transferred so in a balanced redox reaction would that be the change in net mols? So when the redox reaction is balanced we add the coefficients and then see how many mols were transferred?

n is the number of electrons transferred total between the half reactions.
