n in -nFE

Postby Matthew Casillas 1C » Sun Feb 24, 2019 10:31 pm

is n equal to the number of moles or the number of electrons transferred in the process?

Moles of electrons transferred.

Number of electrons transferred, it signifies whether or not the system is gaining or losing energy.

n is equal to the number of electrons transferred. A negative value of n is impossible, thus n is either equal to 0 or a positive integer.

As mentioned above, n is the number of moles of electrons. To find n, one must balance the complete redox reaction (not just each half rxn separately).

The number of electrons transferred is what the n stands for.

n represents the number of electrons transferred in this equation!

Thanks for clarifying what n was. I was lost when doing the homework problems

So if you were given an oxidation and reduction half equation, how do you know which coefficient (in front of the 'e-') to use? Do you add the moles of e- up or just select a number?

N signifies the number of electrons are transferred.

It's the number of electrons transferred, which you can find in the half reactions (after balancing them).
