Classroom Resources: Electrochemistry
1 – 8 of 8 Classroom Resources
Reduction, Stoichiometry, Redox Reaction, Titrations, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Oxidation Number | High School
This lesson students will review oxidation states, half-reactions, balancing reactions and understand how to complete calculations and perform a redox titration.
Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Structure, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Law of Conservation of Energy, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Oxidation Number | High School
In this lesson students will explore photodegradation of color. First, students will view how fading of paint has affected Van Gogh’s great works of art and the efforts that are being taken to conserve these works. While exploring, students will actively engage in research to relate the fading process to redox reactions, X-Ray diffraction, solute-solvent interactions, and light/energy calculations. Students will then act as an Engineering Task Force and brainstorm to identify how photodegradation affects modern day objects and plan how to address their fading in an effort to market to the airliner Jetstar
Reduction, Redox Reaction, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode | High School
In this activity, students will assess the battery power sources for electronic devices they use each day, and then relate the information to their study of oxidation-reduction reactions and electrochemistry.
