Hi- n does refer to moles in electrochem, just like before. An example of this is the delta G standard=-nFEcell equation. N can usually be found in electrochem questions just by looking at the redox reaction or balancing the given equation.
Considering the constant F in electrochemistry, it can be concluded that n refers to the number of moles of electrons being transferred and this is easy to remember since redox reactions come down to an exchange of electrons reducing or oxidizing an atom or molecule.
WesleyWu_1C wrote:"n" means moles of electrons and can easily be found by looking at your balanced redox reaction and looking at the number of electrons that were transferred.
So this is the number of moles of electrons transferred after the entire redox reaction and not the total of electrons transferred in each part of the balanced equation?
