Aim:What is an electrolytic cell? QQ:Na (s)/Na+ (aq) and Cu (s)/Cu2+ (aq) 1. Write the half reactions for each 2. Label the anode and cathode 3. Provide the balanced redox equation 4. Predict the voltage of the cell Do Now:What is electrolysis? Electrolytic Cell:a cell that requires energy to force a non-spontaneous redox reaction to occur. These cells are used for 3 purposes…Electrolysis of a Fused SaltAnode:2Cl-2e- + Cl2 Cathode:Na+1e- Na Overall Reaction:2NaCl 2 Na + Cl2 Electrolysis of WaterAnode:2O2-O2+ 4e- Cathode:2H++ 2e- H2 Overall Reaction:2H2O 2H2+ 2O2 ElectroplatingAnode:Ag0 Ag++ 1e- Cathode:Ag++ 1e- Ag0 Overall Reaction:Ag++ Ag
