voltammetric constant

In linear-sweep voltammetry and related techniques, the empirical quantity defined by the equation
i p A v c B = j p v c B
where i p is the peak current, A is the area of the electrode-solution interface, v is the rate of change of applied potential, and c B is the bulk concentration of the substance B whose reduction or oxidation is responsible for the peak in question.
