Free energy and Chemical Energy question

  1. Jul 31, 2011 #1
    [itex]\Delta[/itex]G = -n F Emax

    and

    [itex]\Delta[/itex]G = [itex]\Delta[/itex]G[itex]\circ[/itex] + RT ln(Q)


    When do we use the first equation and when do we use the second one?

    The first equation contains the Faraday constant. What sorts of chemical systems/problems would entail needing to use that?

    What do the two terms on the right-hand side of the second equation represent?
