If E(cell) = E(cathode)-E(anode)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and

E(cell) = (RT/nF)ln K

Then shouldnt E(cathode)-E(anode)=(RT/nF)ln k ?

I have a question asking to find the voltage of the cell and I am given a equilibrium constant.... which means i should use the second equation with "k" in it, and i get the right answer. But why does this value differ from the first equation's E(cell)?

I hope this explains my question, Thx!
