When using an ion selective electrode, why does plotting Measured electric potential vs LogK+ conform to the nernst equation?
nernst E=Ec+59.16mV (Logak)
3. Discuss why a plot of E vs log [K ] from Part I conforms to equation I (from your jal manual), and a plot of E vs log ak is not necessary. (10 pts)
The ion-selective electrodes respond to the activity of the specific ion according to the Nernst equation, which for the K* selective electrode is: E = E. +2.3 RT F log ak (1)
