### Endgame 5d

Hey can someone tell me what we are supposed to use as the temperature. Is it assumed that it is 298K? Also how is n=1 and not 2?

Not sure about why n is 1 (I had the same question) but for temperature, unless stated otherwise, assume that the temperature is 25 C or 298 K

n=1 because the coefficient of every reactant/product is 2 so you divide the entire reaction by 2 to simplify, leaving you with 1 e-.

The original equation has 2e- but since every molecule has a stoichiometric coefficient of 2 you can divide the equation by 2, so n=1 instead of 2
