For further explanation:
E(cell) = electrical potential of the cell
E(cell) = electrical potential of the cell under standard conditions
R = universal gas constant
T = temperature in kelvin
n = the number of electrons transferred in the reaction (from balanced equation)
F = Faraday’s constant (96,500 C/mol), and
Q = the reaction quotient of the cell reaction
