is wmax equal to ΔG° or just ΔG?

Almost positive it is DeltaG, not DeltaG standard

Yeah, I have this question too and can't seem to find a solid answer.

The lecture notes for cell potential state that maximum work = -charge*E. From this, we get that max w=-nFE, and since max w=ΔG (not ΔG°, according to the notes), then ΔG=-nFE.

I think it is just delta G, but that being said, wmax=deltaG when pressure and temperature are constant.
