Classroom Resources: Electrochemistry
1 – 5 of 5 Classroom Resources
Renewable Energy, Electricity, Galvanic Cells, Cathode, Anode | High School
This video explores the chemistry in the batteries that power hybrid and electric cars.
Catalysts, Reduction, Combustion, Redox Reaction, Activation Energy, Oxidation | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video investigates the role of a catalytic converter and its corresponding chemical reactions within a vehicle. Students will learn about both oxidation and reduction reactions and how they, in combination with a catalyst, can impact the molecules released in a car’s exhaust.
Renewable Energy, Electricity, Galvanic Cells, Heat, Cathode, Anode | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video analyzes alternatives to petroleum based fossil fuels, such as biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells.
Electricity, Reduction, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Spontaneous Reactions , Electron Transfer | Middle School, High School
In this animation, students will visualize electrons traveling through a galvanic cell. Copper and zinc are the chemicals depicted in the spontaneous reaction and the importance of the salt bridge is highlighted. **This video has no audio**
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.
