Dear Menka,

Equivalent weight (also known as gram equivalent) is a term which has been used in several contexts in chemistry. In its most general usage, it is the mass of one equivalent, that is the mass of a given substance which will:

  • supply or react with one mole of hydrogen cations H+ in an acid–base reaction; or
  • supply or react with one mole of electrons e in a redox reaction

Best Of luck
