### Delta G standard

Is the units for standard delta G J/mol or just Joules? When using standard delta G = -nFE standard, the units seem to cancel out to only leave Joules but the solutions manual has the units written as J/mol.

I think it's fine to leave it either way.

The SI units for Gibb's Free Energy are Joules. However, as mentioned in class, we could also think of the units as Joules/mols of reaction.

I believe Lavelle mentioned in class that although it is Joules, it can also be seen as J/mol, so either way is fine.
