chem lecture ch19

Galvanic cells they use redox reactions to generate electricity. The energy comes from a spontaneous redox reaction, and the electron transfer is forced to take place through a wire.
cathode is the electrode at which reduction takes place
anode is the electrode at which oxidation takes place
Cations move towards the _____? cathode
Anions move towards the _____? anode
salt bridge a tube filled with a solution containing ions not involved in the cell reaction.
potential magnitude of this ability is called the potential in ( V ). The volt is the amount of energy in joules, that can be delivered per coulomb ( C ). So, a charge flowing under a potential of one volt can deliver one joule of energy per coulomb. 1 V = 1 J / C
cell potential ( Ecell ) The maximum potential a galvanic cell can generate. It depends on the composition of the electrodes, the concentrations of the ions in the half-cells and the temperature.
Reduction potential measure of the tendency of reduction half-reactions to occur. The magnitude of this tendency is expressed by the half-reaction’s reduction potential.
E°cell formula E°cell = E°Ag+ - E°Cu2+
the calculated standard cell potential for the spontaneous reaction is always ________? posotive
cell potential formula G = maximum work = n F Ecell n=number of moles of electrons transferred, F=Faraday constant The Faraday constant F is equal to the coulombs of charge equivalent to one mole of electrons (9.65 104 Coulombs per mole of electrons).
If G is negative, which corresponds to a positive value of Ecell, the reaction will occur ____________? spontaneously
pH-electrode a galvanic cell with a potential, that is proportional to the proton concentration in the solutions into which it is immersed.
In an electrolytic cell: Cathode is _______? Anode is ________? cathode is negative anode is positive

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
