I am getting a different answer than the solution manual when it asks you to predict the potential of each cell. I am using the E = E*-(0.0592/n x lnQ), but the book uses 0.025693/n. Which constant is correct, because I thought Dr. Lavelle told us the first one in lecture, but all the work in the book uses the second. If the first one is not supposed to be used for this, then what do we use it for?

Bot equations should work since the equation using log Q is derived from the equation with ln Q.
