Unformatted text preview: 5. Know and be able to use the equations that relate and K , and understand the relationship between signs of and magnitude of K , and spontaneity. 6. Describe some common voltaic cells: the flashlight or dry cell, the lead storage battery, the silver-zinc cell, and the fuel cell. 7. Explain the corrosion of metals in electrochemical terms and describe methods of corrosion protection. 8. Describe how an electrolytic cell differs from a voltaic cell. Understand the chloralkali process and describe the chemistry that occurs in this cell. Describe the potential end uses of chloralkali process products, for example in bleach manufacture or water sanitation. 9. Identify the possible half reactions that might occur in an electrolysis and choose the pair that will occur, based on the highest (least negative) cell potential. 10. Use Faradays laws to relate the quantity of chemical change produced by a given amount of electric charge....
