Explore the fundamental role of electron transfer in oxidation and reduction reactions by studying the voltage of galvanic cells. What are the basic features of an electrochemical cell? How can reduction potentials be measured? What factors determine the ability of a galvanic cell to produce electricity? How does the voltage of a galvanic cell depend on concentration? Can this relationship be used to determine the solubility constant for a salt?
