Unit 10: Electrochemistry
Learning Objectives for Unit 10 is located here.
Electrochemistry is the branch of chemistry that deals with the relationship between electricity (the flow of electrons) and chemical reactions. An introduction to its basic principles was introduced in the beginning of the course with oxidation-reduction reactions -- now we go into depth. To be discussed: oxidation-reduction reactions, voltaic (galvanic) cells, cell potentials under standard conditions, free energy and redox reactions, cell potentials under nonstandard conditions, and electrolysis.
