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·NA = 96,485.33 C/mol, is the product of elementary charge, e = 1.602176634∙10-19 C/x, and the Avogadro constant, NA = 6.02214076∙1023 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.
