Determining n

How do you determine n? I find it pretty confusing at times.

n is the moles of electrons transferred in the reaction, which is determined from writing the oxidation and reduction half-reactions.

n is the number of moles of e in the reaction that is being transferred

You should determine n from the number of moles of electrons that are present in your half-reactions. It should be the same number for both half-reactions.

Do you mean n in electrochemistry, for the number of moles of electrons being transferred? Or n in kinetics, for the order of the reaction?
