1.Electrode reaction as a series of multiple consecutive steps A charge transfer reaction provides an additional channel for current to flow through the interface. The amount of electricity that flows through this channel depends on the amount of species being oxidized or reduced according to the Faraday law: This expression may be rearranged to give expression for current: n- number of electrons in a redox reaction, N-number of moles, M A - molecular weight, F- Faraday constant

3
This equation described average current flowing through the electrode During time – t. During infinitesimal period dt the number of electrolyzed moles is dN and the expression for the instantaneous current is: The rate of a chemical reaction is : Hence faradaic current is a measure of a reaction rate

-mixed potential: example corrosion of Fe in HCl: cathodic reaction: 2 H + + 2e = H 2 Anodic reaction: Fe = Fe 2+ +2e E corr ln i corr Slope = 2H + + 2e = H 2 Fe = Fe e
