### When to Use Nernst

When do we use Ecell = -0.0592/n log Q and when do we use Ecell = Eo - RT/nF ln Q?

### Re: When to Use Nernst

You would use Nernst Equation when the reaction is not at standard conditions and not at equilibrium.

Return to “Appications of the Nernst Equation (e.g., Concentration Cells, Non-Standard Cell Potentials, Calculating Equilibrium Constants and pH)”
