Solution: Relationships of E°, ΔG°, and K. Any one of these important parameters can be used to calculate the other two. The signs of E° and ΔG° determine the direction that the reaction proceeds under standard

Problem

The relationship between E naught and delta-G naught is delta-G naught equals –n times F times E naught. The relationship between delta-G naught and K is delta-G naught equals negative R times T times the natural log of K. The relationship between K and E naught is E naught equals R times T times divided by n divided by F times the natural log of K.
Relationships of E°, ΔG°, and K. Any one of these important parameters can be used to calculate the other two. The signs of E° and ΔG° determine the direction that the reaction proceeds under standard conditions. The magnitude of determines the relative amounts of reactants and products in an equilibrium mixture.

What does the variable n represent in the ΔG° and E° equations?
