What are Electrolytic Cells?
This post will be an introduction to electrolytic cells for QCE Chemistry.
3.2.5 – Electrolytic Cells
- Understand that electrolytic cells use an external electrical potential difference
to provide the energy to allow a non-spontaneous redox reaction to occur,
and appreciate that these can be used in small-scale and industrial
situations, including metal plating and the purification of copper
- Predict and explain the products of the electrolysis of a molten salt and
aqueous solutions of sodium chloride and copper sulfate. Explanations
should refer to Eø values, the nature of the electrolyte, and the concentration
of the electrolyte
