Functions Used
log10 - Common logarithm function (base 10), log10(Number)
Variables Used
Overpotential - (Measured in Volt) - The Overpotential is the potential difference between a half-reaction's thermodynamically determined reduction potential and the potential at which the redox event is experimentally observed.
Tafel Slope - (Measured in Volt) - The Tafel slope describes how the electrical current through an electrode depends on the voltage difference between the electrode and the bulk electrolyte. The Tafel slope is measured experimentally.
Electric Current Density - (Measured in Ampere per Meter²) - The Electric current density is the amount of charge per unit of time that flows through the unit area of a chosen cross-section.
Exchange Current Density - (Measured in Ampere per Meter²) - The Exchange Current Density is defined as the current in the absence of net electrolysis and at zero overpotential.
