Calculate the standard reaction Gibbs free energy for the following cell reactions:

(b) 6 Fe(3+) (aq) + 2Cr(+3) (aq) + 7 H2O(l) --> 6 Fe(+2) (aq) + Cr2O7(-2) (aq) + 14H+ (aq), Ecell° 5 21.29 V

How do I find n for deltaGº= -nFE_cellº?

The n represents the electrons transferred in the redox reaction. So to do that, find the oxidation states of the reactants and products, identify the reduction and oxidation reaction, balance the charges, and the total amount of electrons transferred in this reaction is the n value.
