E rxn vs E standard at equilibrium

Postby Ekayana Sethi 2K » Thu Feb 22, 2018 9:23 am

I know that Erxn at equilibrium is 0. At equilibrium is Erxn=Estandard? So is Estandard also 0 at equilibrium?

I don't think Erxn is zero at equilibrium. Erxn=Estandard at equilibrium. It only equals 0 for hydrogen

Erxn is not 0 at equilibrium. At equilibrium, Erxn=Estandard. So therefore at equilibrium, deltaG is=0 because deltaG=-nFE. If -nFErxn=-nFEstandard, then the overall is 0.
