### When do you use LNQ vs LogQ?

When using the Nernst equation when do you use LnQ vs Log Q? I know the equation has Ln Q but some work I have seen has LogQ

### Re: When do you use LNQ vs LogQ?

When you use equation $E = E^{o}-\frac{RT}{nF}lnQ$, you use lnQ.
When you use equation $E = E^{o}-\frac{0.05916}{n}logQ$, which is the simpler equation for condition under 298K, you use logQ.
