1. Basic Concepts: Redox reaction: involves transfer of electrons from one pecies to another. Oxidized spec es to a ot e a species loses electrons. Reduced Oxidant a species gains electrons. Oxidizing agent which takes electrons Reductant Reducing agent which gives electrons -- Electric charges, q, is measure in coulombs Faraday constant, F.

2. Galvanic Cells Concept: a galvanic cell is also called voltaic cell, which uses a spontaneous hemical reaction to generate electricity chemical reaction to generate electricity. xidation Reduction Oxidation Net reaction node: the electrode where oxidation occurs Anode: the electrode where oxidation occurs Cathode: the electrode where reduction occurs
