### delta G = -nFE(cell) Variables

What do the variables in deltaG = -nFE(cell) all mean?

Delta G is the standard change in Gibb's free energy, n is the number of electrons involved in the redox reaction (from the balanced equation), F is Faraday's constant (can be found on equation sheet), and E is the standard cell potential (measured in volts).

delta G = change in gibbs free energy (energy to do work)
n = (# of moles of electrons transferred)
F = (Faraday's Constant , usually 96,485)
E = (cell potential)
Hope this helps! : )
