TheNernst equationwas named after theGerman chemist
who establishedvery useful relations between theenergy or
potential of a cellto theconcentrations of 
participating ions.E = E

The
Nernst Equation 
is derived from the emf and the Gibbs energy
under non-standard conditions

WhenE
0
is positive,the reactionis spontaneous.E
0
is negative,the reactionis not spontaneous.Since the change inGibbs free energy, , is also related to spontaneity of areaction, therefore, and are related. Specifically,
∆G=
-nFE
0
Where n is number of electrons transferred in the reaction,F is the Faraday constant (96500 C/mol),E
0
is potential difference. Under standard conditions, this equation is then
∆G=
-nFE
