In so doing, he called upon the Nernst equation [38] and suggested that the free electron could be viewed as an ideal gas.
The concentration of the hydrogene ions of an unknown pH solution is expressed ideally with the Nernst equation (International Organization for Standardization, 1992):
It is well justified to delete the attribute "seemingly" because the Third Law of Thermodynamics, enunciated by Nernst in 1906 (19), implies the unattainability of absolute zero.
