Winter 2011 Midterm #7&8 part C

Postby Shirley Wong 2E » Sun Feb 07, 2016 5:40 pm

In the Winter 2011 midterm, #7&8 part c asks what is Keq and the change in free energy at 25 degrees C. They use the equation logKeq=nE/0.0592V. Can someone explain to me how to get this formula?

that formula was derived from delta G= -RTlnK combined with delta G= -nFE, to find the value of K.
I found it easier to follow if I first found delta G, and then plugged that value in to solve for K.
