Kinetics: Exchange Current Density

The symmetry factor Beta was determined to be 0.4 for an activation controlled Ag deposition process. At overpotential n = -0.400 V the current density was found to be j = -5.125 A/dm^2.

What is the value of the exchange current density jo, and what will be the current density j [A/dm^2] at an overpotential of -0.003 V?

Solution Summary

This solution involves finding the value of exchange current density.
