Electrical Work Electrical work is done by moving charges( q ) through a potential difference E w elec = q E Potential is measured in volts (V) Charge is measured in coulombs (C) 1 V = 1 J/C work w.r.t. system = - q E 1 mole of electrons = 96485 C = 1 Faraday (F) w elec = - n F E cell

Electrical Work and G Including electrical work at constant T and P E = q p + w PV + w elec H= E + P V = q p - P V + w elec + P V = q p + w elec G = H – T S = q p + w elec – T S If the process is reversible (most efficient) q p = q p,rev = T S G = w elec

Electrical Work and Free Energy Recalling: w elec,max = G w elec = - n F E cell So, G = - n F E cell or G ° = - n F E ° cell

Equilibrium The relationship between ΔG° and E° gives us another way to measure equilibrium constants G ° = - RT ln K eq G ° = - n F E ° cell So E ˚ cell = RT n F ln K eq
