FARADAYS CONSTANT

Asked by midhunkrishna | 20th Sep, 2008, 04:39: PM

Expert Answer:

 Faraday constant is the magnitude of electric charge per mole of electrons. The Faraday constant, denoted F, is widely used in calculations in electrochemistry, and has the currently accepted value:

F = 96 485.3399(24) coulomb/mole

The constant F has a simple relation to two other physical constants:

F = NAe,

where NA is Avogadro's number (approximately 6.02×1023 mole−1) and e is the elementary charge, the magnitude of the charge on an electron (approximately 1.602×10−19 coulombs)
