Problem: In the Nernst equation, what is the numerical value of the reaction quotient, Q, under standard conditions?

FREE Expert Solution

The Nernst Equation relates the concentrations of compounds and cell potential.

Ecell=E°cell-(0.0592 Vn)logQ

Ecell = cell potential under non-standard conditions
cell = standard cell potential
n = number of e- transferred
Q= reaction quotient = [products]/[reactants]
