Work and Cell Potential Relationship

Postby Jarrett Peyrefitte 2K » Thu Feb 27, 2020 11:11 pm

What is the relationship between work and cell potential? What is the equation?

since the work is work max, and work max is = to , which is = to nFE(cell), then work max= nFE(cell)

The equation modeling the relationship between work and cell potential is ∆G = - nFE˚cell, where n is the number of moles transferred, F is faraday constant, and E is the work/charge of the cell measured in volts.

The equation that represents the relationship between work and cell potential is: wMAX = - n F E. wMAX is the work done, which is also equal to ∆G, the change in Gibbs free energy.
