Faraday Constant

Postby AndrewM2G » Mon Feb 13, 2017 5:19 pm

For the Value of F in the Nernst equation and any other application of the Faraday constant, is it scaled in response to the number of electrons being transferred in the redox reaction in question? Or is it always the value of 96,485 C/mol?

I believe it is always the same constant.

If you look at page 50 in the course reader, there are 3 mols of electrons, but the Faraday Constant is still 96485 C/mol e-.

The Faraday Constant is 96,485 C/mol no matter how many electrons are being transferred.
