. To obtain useful electrical energy from an oxidation-reduction process, we must set up the reaction in such a way that the Oxidation half-reaction and the reduction half-reaction are physically one _____another.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The corresponding term to the given blank is to be stated.

To obtain useful electrical energy from an oxidation-reduction process, we must set up the reaction in such a way that the oxidation half-reaction and the reduction half-reaction are physically _______one another.

Concept Introduction:

Oxidation involves the loss of an electron by an atom or an ion. Reduction involves the gain of an electron by an atom or an ion.

An oxidizing agent accepts the electrons from other substances while a reducing agent loses the electrons to other substances.

Explanation

The oxidation-reduction reaction transfers the electrons in the solution.

Anode and cathode are the electrodes of a galvanic cell. Anode acts as a negative pole whereas cathode acts as a positive pole.

The oxidation reaction occurs at the anode and the reduction reaction occurs at the cathode.

These reactions are a spontaneous process. In other words, there is no work obtained by two half cell reactions.

The work can be obtained by connecting the two half cell reactions through a wire...
