Oxidation-Reduction and Electrochemistry
Broad Concept: Oxidation-reduction reactions occur by electron transfer and constitute a major class of chemical reactions. Examples of redox reactions occur everywhere; their consequences are experienced daily.
|11.1 ||Describe the chemical processes known as oxidation and reduction.|
|11.2 ||Assign oxidation numbers.|
|11.3|| Balance oxidation-reduction equations by using half-reactions.|
|11.4 ||Identify the components, and describe the processes that occur in an electrochemical cell.|
|11.5 ||Explain how a typical battery, such as a lead storage battery or a dry cell, works.|
|11.6 ||Compare and contrast voltaic and electrolytic cells and their uses.|
|11.7 ||Calculate the net voltage of a cell given a table of standard reduction potentials.|
