**Ecell = E0cell - (RT/nF)lnQ**

So I understand the Nernst Equation, but I don't have some info. (Please bare with me, I'm in secondary)

I'm doing a Cu - Al cell. My E cell is negative

**(-1.33). Does this have an affect on the equation?**

What exactly does E0 stand for?I understand how to find E cell, but do I square it by something? I can't find online how many electrons are swapped.

What exactly does E0 stand for?

**How many electrons are swapped?**

How do you factor in the pH? I've calculated the pH and the number of ions in it, but where do i add this in on the equation? Please lay it out how you would in the equation so I can see

How do you factor in the pH? I

I'm stuck on R (gas constant, which is 8.31 (volt-coulomb)/(mol-K)). I can't figure out the volt-coulomb as i don't know the voltage.

**How can I calculate the coulomb? Then the volt-coulomb? And is Mol-K (Mole)(Kelvin)**? If so, do I factor in the temperature in Kelvins twice?

For N (n = number of moles of electrons exchanged in the electrochemical reaction)

**do i just multiply the moles per electron?**

Finally - What exactly am I dividing to calculate Q?

**(How do I calculate Q?)**

Please explain this all in basic jargon - or just normal English if you prefer. My vocabulary is limited. Thank you!
