According to Faraday's 2nd law(I think),when the same current passes through a series of electrolytic solutions,the mass ratio is equal to the ratio of their chemical equivalents(hope I'm right?)
I googled for the definition of chemical equivalent or E,
E = atomic mass unit(amu)/valency,was the given definition. Now I learnt in school,that E=Relative molecular mass(RMM) /valency.
This may seem like a very basic question but,it's very vital I understand,
how is the amu = RMM???
I know that amu = 1/12th the mass of an atom of C -12 isotope ,so how is this equal to the RMM.?
and my other question based on E is ,
Is the chemical equivalent of an atom say H = chemical equivalent of a molecule,say H2?
