[tex]\Delta Q = nF [/tex]

[tex]\implies \Delta G^0 =-nFE^0_{cell} [/tex]

Of course, now this translates to another convention : that a negative free energy change tells you that the reaction is plausible. To make this more intuitive, it may help to go a step further.

[tex]\Delta G^0 = -RT lnK [/tex]

[tex]\Delta G^0 < 0 \implies lnK > 0 \implies K > 1 [/tex]
