The Faraday constant, denoted by the symbol F and sometimes stylized as ℱ, is named after Michael chemistry and physics, this constant represents the magnitude of electric charge per mole of electrons. It has the currently accepted value F = 96 12 C mol − Since 1 mol electrons = 76 x 10 23 electrons (Avogadro's number), the Faraday constant is equal to. A self-educated book-binder, Faraday took great interest in physical science and earned a position with the Royal Institution to study the sciences. Faraday was also a devout Christian, remaining loyal to the church throughout his life. While Michael Faraday’s research efforts made advancements in chemistry, he is best known for his work in.
