How Can We Apply Metal Reactivity?
This post will introduce the concept of galvanic cells and half-equations for Prelim Chemistry.
Topic: Predicting Reactions of Metals
- Conduct investigations to measure and compare the reduction potential of galvanic half-cell
- Construct relevant half-equations and balanced overall equations to represent a range of redox reactions
Galvanic cells apply the ability of metals to perform redox reactions to form a cell that can produce electrical energy. This video provides a good introduction to galvanic cells.
This video offers an animated video os a copper-zinc battery.
