### Relation between deltaG and E

If at equilibrium G=0 and Ecell=0, and if a positive value for E means reduction is spontaneous, would the value for deltaG also be positive? Is this the same type of direct relation?

No, a positive E supports G being negative, as can be seen with the equation dG=-nfE
