Electrochemisty

Postby Delaney Smith 1C » Sun Feb 16, 2020 3:58 pm

Hi! I was absent Friday. Can someone explain what electrochemistry means and the importance of electrochemistry? Thanks!

it is the study of chemical processes that cause electrons to move, resulting in electricity that is generated by the movements of electrons from one element to another. This reaction is known as a redox reaction and is important because we will be doing many redox reaction problems in electrochemistry.

All about electron transfer and a major application is batteries

Electrochemistry, as it sounds, is the study of the relationship between electricity and chemistry. What we mostly discussed on Friday is the transfer of electrons in electrons. Oxidation involves the loss of electrons, and reduction involves the gaining of electrons in reaction. A redox reaction is a reaction that involves two of these processes at the same time.

Electrochemistry is the study of electricity and how it relates to chemical reactions. In electrochemistry, electricity can be generated by movements of electrons from one element to another in redox reactions.

Electrochemistry is understanding chemical applications involving electricity. In class we looked at oxidation and reduction - redox - reactions as examples (loss or gain of electrons, respectively). Chemical changes are often seen with changes in electrical energy which we will be looking at.

The answer to this might be obvious but how does this connect to batteries?

At a basic level, batteries are storage places for chemical reactions to occur. These chemical reactions can be used to generate electrical energy for our usage.

In a chemical reaction, there is an electric current that is produced and vice versa (such as when recharging a battery).

In addition, Professor Lavelle mentioned on Friday that when the chemical reactions in batteries come to equilibrium, the battery dies. This is likely because of the lack of transfer of a high volume of electrons once the redox reaction (in which different species in the reaction exchange electrons), has settled to equilibrium.

So are we trying to reach equilibrium then?
