When to Use Nernst

Postby Yen Vuong 2I » Sun Feb 12, 2017 9:35 pm

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

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)”
