Moles in nernst

Postby Ellen Amico 2L » Mon Mar 02, 2020 12:45 am

For n (moles) in the nernst equation, is it the moles of electrons or the moles of the substances being oxidized/reduced?

n is for the moles of electrons being transferred.

If you balanced the equations right, the moles of electrons in each half reaction are the same so you just use the moles of electrons transferred.

n refers to the moles of electrons that is being transfered
