#### Solution Preview

Actually looks like this idea is relatively new in the discussion of a pE which is a gauge of a systems oxidizing or reducing potential pE = - log (activity of the electrons) if the activity is 1 PE is zero and Ecell is Eo

The Nernst equation is shown on page 10 of this reference.

Finally, we have the form pE=pEo -1/n log {[RED]/[OX]}

where pE = E/0.0592 and pEo= Eo/0.059

So we are interested in ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution is provided in 354 words. It references Nernst equations to solve the problem and provides a reference to further learning.
