Feasibility and Gibbs Free Energy of Reaction

Let n faraday charge be involved in a cell generating an emf E, then the magnitude of the work done by the cell will be calculated as:
|Work| = Charge × Potential = (nF) \times (E)

Now, the maximum work that can be extracted from the cell is equal to the decrease in the Gibb's free energy.

So, it can be said that

-\Delta \mathrm{G}=\mathrm{nFE}

The negative sign is incorporated to include the spontaineity relation between E and Gibb's free Energy

Similarly, maximum obtainable work from the cell at standard condition will be:

\mathrm{W}_{\max }=\mathrm{nF} \mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{cell}}^{0} \quad \text { where } \mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{cell}}^{0}=\text { standard emf of standard cell potential }

\mathrm{-\Delta G^{\circ}=n F E_{\text {cell }}^{0}}

Thus, for a spontaneous cell reaction, 

E > 0 and \DeltaG < 0
