Classroom Resources: Energy & Thermodynamics
1 – 2 of 2 Classroom Resources
Redox Reaction, Classification of Reactions, Exothermic & Endothermic, Oxidation, Spontaneous Reactions , Spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this demonstration, glycerol is oxidized by using potassium permanganate as a catalyst. This gives off a tremendous amount of heat, light, and gas as a volcano of purple flames emit. It is an excellent way to introduce exothermic reactions and discuss spontaneous reactions.
Reduction, Redox Reaction, Reduction Potentials, Galvanic Cells, Dimensional Analysis, Exothermic & Endothermic, Oxidation, Half Reactions, Cathode, Anode, Gibb's Free Energy , Spontaneous Reactions , Electron Transfer, Electrons, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions, Spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lesson students compare energy densities of lead acid and lithium ion batteries to understand the relationship between electrochemical cell potentials and utilization of stored chemical energy.
