Introduction to Electrolytic Cells

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
