Classroom Resources: Energy & Thermodynamics
1 – 4 of 4 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).
Entropy, Exothermic & Endothermic, Gibb's Free Energy , Enthalpy, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lab, students will be able to observe and measure energy changes during the formation of solutions. The students should be able to explain and describe these changes in terms of entropy, enthalpy and free energy.
Catalysts, Entropy, Equilibrium Constants, Enthalpy, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams, Reaction Quotient, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lesson students will understand the connections between the equilibrium constant (K) and the reaction quotient (Q) as well as how they determine the favorability of a reaction. Additionally students will be able to determine if a reaction is kinetically favored or thermodynamically favored.
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.
