Quantitative Electrochemistry: Coulombs, Electrons and Moles—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Electrochemistry bridges two disciplines—electricity and chemistry—and deals with the interconversion of electrical and chemical energy in chemical reactions. With the Quantitative Electrochemistry: Coulombs, Electrons and Moles—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, investigate the relationship between the quantity of electricity and the extent of a chemical reaction in an electrochemical process by determining the average value of the Faraday constant based on Faraday’s laws of electrolysis for the electroplating of copper from a copper(II) sulfate solution.

Concepts

  • Electrolysis
  • Electrical Charge (Coulombs)
  • Current (Amperes)
  • Faraday Constant (Coulombs per Mole)
