Course reader example pg. 7 electrochemistry

Postby 704647747 » Sun Feb 12, 2017 4:18 pm

I was reviewing the examples on the course reader, and saw that on page 7, the F constant is listed as =96485C/mol e-. I just wanted to double check that this should be 96,4853 C/mol instead? The answer comes out differently when I substitute F with the value listed on the laminated formula sheet, instead of the one on the course reader example.

Thanks,

Faraday's constant on the laminated formula sheet should be 96,485.3 C/mol instead of 96,4853 C/mol. The laminated formula sheet is incorrect and the course reader is correct.

I think the laminated sheet has a typo. There should be a decimal point before the last three, otherwise the use of the comma doesn't make sense. Faraday's Constant is 96,485.3 C/mol.

After doing some research online, I believe that it is actually correct on the course reader and not on the laminated constant sheet. The number on the laminated sheet should be 96,485.3 C/mol, not 96,4853 C/mol (this number doesn't make any sense because the apostrophe is not in the right place).
Thank you for pointing this out though, I would not have seen it otherwise!

Thanks for the clarification!
