Classroom Resources: Electrochemistry
1 – 2 of 2 Classroom Resources
Electricity, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Galvanic Cells, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Spontaneous Reactions , Electron Transfer, Electrons, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions, Electrolytic Cells | High School
In this activity, students will use an animation to visualize how a galvanic cell works on a particulate level. Copper and zinc are the chemicals depicted in the spontaneous reaction. The transfer of electrons and involvement of the salt bridge are highlighted, in addition to the half reactions that take place for Zn (Zn -> Zn2+ + 2 e-) and Cu (2 e- + Cu2+ -> Cu).
Electrolysis, Redox Reaction, Galvanic Cells, Gibb's Free Energy , Electrolytic Cells | High School
In this lesson, students will build several electrolytic cells, discuss and diagram their cells to further their understanding of electrolysis, and use qualitative and quantitative analysis of the electrolysis of potassium iodide. Finally, students will practice and be assessed on their knowledge of electrolysis on AP exam-level questioning.
