firewatch

Students assemble their very own handheld, tiny battery in this lab. Batteries have tremendous impacts in our everyday lives. Students delve into voltaic and electrolytic cells—how are these types of cells related to batteries? A few simple materials are provided in order to successfully complete the lab and the procedure guides students to ensure success.

Concepts

  • Half-cell reaction
  • Voltaic vs. electrolytic cell
  • Oxidation–reduction reaction
  • Standard-reduction potential
