Re: Nernst Equation

The Nernst equation allows us to calculate E based on the standard electric potential, temperature, and concentrations of a redox reaction.

Re: Nernst Equation

In addition to what was stated above, the Nernst equation allows us to estimate the potentials of cells under nonstandard conditions.

Re: Nernst Equation

It lets us calculate the voltage of any concentration of reactants and products.
