0), the model matched the experimental cell potential at equilibrium but the predicted curve swings 5 % off the experimental curve in the middle of charging the V-RFB; this is the effect of the logarithmic function (Log10) in the Nernst equation.
La ecuacion de Nernst (1864-1941; premio Nobel de Quimica en 1920 por sus logros en termodinamica), fue el paso definitivo, para que Marcel Pourbaix (1904-1998) a partir de esta ecuacion, definiera la relacion entre Potencial y pH en los conocidos diagramas de POURBAIX.

As a consequence of a membrane capacitance, and the diffusion of ions across a differentially permeable membrane, an equilibrium potential (or Nernst potential) is established (Nernst, 1888, 1889).
In 1906, however, the German physical chemist Walther Hermann Nernst (1864-1941) advanced thermodynamic reasons for supposing that absolute zero could not be reached by any technique.
We propose to exploit the large Nernst effect in ferromagnetic conductors for electrical sensing of temperature gradients with exceptional sensitivity.
