### #14.23 finding n

When going through this problem, the solution manual says that n is 6 but I'm confused as to how we get that number. How do you find n for this question?

For this question, I think you have to figure out the oxidation and reduction half-reactions and those will give you the moles of electrons for the equation.

In this case, n is the number of electrons involved in the reaction. You can determine it by balancing the half reactions.

By balancing the half reactions, you will find that the number of electrons transferred between the two equations will be 6. n is the number of electrons transferred in a redox reaction, so therefore n is going to be 6.
