Mathematical form[change | change source]
Faraday's laws can be summarized by
- m is the mass of the substance liberated at an electrode in gms
- Q is the total electric charge passed through the substance in coulombs
- F = 96485.33289(59) C mol−1 is the Faraday constant
- M is the molar mass of the substance in grams per mol
- z is the valency number of ions of the substance (electrons transferred per ion).
M/z is the same as the equivalent weight of the substance altered.
