Modifications in Law of Equivalence

There are certain modifications required in order to use law of equivalence. These modifications are as follows:
  1. The equivalents of a substance produced and reacted may not necessarily be same. If the n-factor of the substance in the reaction in which it is produced were different than the n-factor of the same substance when it is reacting, then the equivalent of the substance produced and reacted would be different.
  2. The equivalents of the same substances can be added or subtracted only when they are of the similar n-factor.
  3. In a reaction, the equivalents of oxidizing agents would always be equal to the equivalents of reducing agents, irrespective of the number of agents used in the reaction.
