. Sketch a schematic representation of a typical galvanic cell, using a reaction of your choice. Indicate the direction of elect ion flow in your cell. How are the solutions placed in electric al contact to allow charge to balance between the chambers of the cell?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

A schematic diagram of a typical galvanic cell, using a reaction of choice should be sketched. The direction of electron flow in the cell should be indicated. How are the solutions placed in electrical contact to allow charge to balance between the chambers of the cell should be discussed.

Concept Introduction:

A Galvanic cell also known as electrochemical battery is a device that exploits a spontaneous oxidation reduction reaction to produce electrical energy. Here oxidizing agent and reducing agent has been separated, so that the electron generated by oxidation should travel through a wire from reducing agent to oxidizing agent.

Explanation

Given information:

A Galvanic cell also known as electrochemical battery is a device that exploits a spontaneous oxidation reduction reaction to produce electrical energy. Here oxidizing agent and reducing agent has been separated, so that the electron generated by oxidation should travel through a wire from reducing agent to oxidizing agent.

Oxidation- Half cell reaction: Zn(s)Zn(aq)2++ e

Reduction- Half cell reaction: Cu(aq)
