  • Electrochemistry: Electrode Potential

    2921 Words  | 12 Pages

    Abstract Chemical reactions can be used to produce electricity and electricity can be used to cause chemical reactions through oxidation-reduction reactions. The first part of the experiment measures the standard electrode potentials of five various half cells against the Cu2+(1M)|Cu half cell. The last three half cells are prepared through electrolysis. The electrode potentials of all reactions are positive which means that they are spontaneous. There is a significant percent difference from the

  • The Role Of Chemical Reactions And Electricity And Centers Upon The Interrelation Of Chemical Energy And Electrical Energy

    1707 Words  | 7 Pages

    Electrochemistry, a branch of physical chemistry, is the study of the relationship between chemical reactions and electricity and centers upon the interrelation of chemical energy and electrical energy. Contributing to such crucial technological developments as the invention of batteries and fuel cells, corrosion protection and the study of metallurgy, electrochemistry is credited with a great deal of real life applications and has had widespread impact on mankind. One of the most common and fundamental

  • How Voltage Is Affected Within A Cell

    1619 Words  | 7 Pages

    cell as long as it was the same type of cell being used already within the cell combination. In the process, parallel circuits were found to not affect voltage and only affect current. Introduction Electrochemistry involves studying the transfer of electrons from one metal to another. Electrochemistry allows

  • The Cell Potential Of The World And Affects Most Individuals On A Daily Basis Essay

    2167 Words  | 9 Pages

    Electrochemistry is a vital part of the world and affects most individuals on a daily basis. Without electrochemistry and the knowledge gained from it, there would be no batteries, no cars, no electronics and many other things that depended on a power source. One of the main ideas is that of concentration cells. Concentration cells essentially make a battery by using different concentrations of compounds to have a positive cell potential. If something is a battery meaning, it has a positive cell

  • Lab Report On The Laboratory

    1485 Words  | 6 Pages

    The laboratory consists of (1) an introductory tutorial on electrochemistry that introduces several electrochemical techniques used in research laboratories and (2) an analysis section that implements these techniques to characterize water electrolysis half reactions. A flow chart outlining the laboratory is shown in Scheme 2. The laboratory is carried out in groups of two to three students in a 4-hour lab period and discussion questions and calculations are assigned with the laboratory write up

  • Electrochemistry Effects Of Ketamine

    390 Words  | 2 Pages

    While Ketamine does have some stereochemistry effects, used properly and if needed with other anesthetics and at the correct dosage and indication, there is nothing so extremely unique or bad about it in veterinary medicine that I would need to overcome in order to use it in animal patients. There is one unique issue with Ketamine that all veterinarians must be aware of and need to take into consideration: substance abuse. The illicit use of Ketamine by humans as a recreational drug is a concern

  • Correlation Between Zinc And Copper Solutions

    Read the Voltmeter to see what the electrical cell potential is. Repeat steps 13-18 for all variations of Copper Chloride. Record the raw quantitative data in the table below: Electrical Potential Difference Between Zinc and Copper Solutions Electrical Potential Difference Variation in Copper Chloride Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 Record qualitative data as well in the Observations section. When all quantitative data has been collected and recorded, use the equation

  • Redox Reactions : Alkaline Batteries

    1348 Words  | 6 Pages

    For many years now batteries have been our primary source of energy, acting as the driving force behind our business’, transportation and electronic devises, ensuring our day-to-day lives run smoothly. It is safe to say that they play a fundamental role in powering our 21st century lives, but have you ever stopped to wonder where this energy might come from, or just how batteries work? Alkaline batteries, in particular, have provided us with energy on the go for over two centuries, with the global

  • Water Assignment : What Is Acid Rain Harmful To The Environment

    1297 Words  | 6 Pages

    Water Assignment: Part 2 1: What is acid rain? What type of chemical reactions are involved in it’s production? Why is acid rain harmful to the environment. Acid rain is any form of precipitation with acidic components such as sulfuric or nitric acid that fall to the ground from the atmosphere in wet and dry forms. Acid rain is a result of when sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are emitted into the atmosphere and are transported by wind and air currents. (What is Acid Rain? (2017, March 01).

  • What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of L-Air Battery

    743 Words  | 3 Pages

    Cathode : ½ O2+H2O+2e → 2OH- Overall: Zn+½O2 → ZnO Zinc/air battery not only provides a high energy density, but also has many advantages. Based on the electrochemical principle, it is clear that it produces electrochemical energy by using oxygen, which can be directly obtained from the atmosphere rather than from the system itself, which makes the miniaturization of micro-battery possible. The oxygen diffuses into the cathode during discharge and reacts with the electrolyte
