A system of differential kinetic equations is derived for the redox reaction n2 Ox1 + n1 Red2n1 Ox2 + n2 Red1, proceeding only through electrode processes. Its numerical solution is compared with a simplified analytical solution which leads to linearization of the relations between measurable quantities and thus verification of the kinetic model used on real redox reactions.
