Faraday constant
Description
The Faraday constant, F, links the electric charge [C] to amount [mol], and thus relates the electrical format, e [C], to the molar format, n [mol]. The Farady constant, F = e·N_{A} = 96,485.33 C/mol, is the product of elementary charge, e = 1.602176634∙10^{-19} C/x, and the Avogadro constant, N_{A} = 6.02214076∙10^{23} x/mol. The dimensionless unit [x] is not explicitely considered by IUPAC.
Abbreviation: F [C/mol]

The 'faraday' as a unit of charge
- The faraday can be considered as a unit of charge (1 faraday of charge per mole) based on the Faraday constant.
