When using the equation deltaG=-nFE, how exactly do you determine n?

n is the number of moles of electrons transferred in an electrochemical reaction; for example, in a reaction such as Cu^2+ + 2e- --> Cu, n=2 since two moles of electrons are transferred in this reaction.

n is the number of moles so you would have to look at the problem and work from there.
