Purpose The purpose of the experiment is to demonstrate the concept of oxidation and reduction reactions by producing a reaction and generating electricity; this is done by creating a flow of electrons from one place to another. A voltmeter is used to measure the electricity generated. Procedure Four Styrofoam cups that were cut in half were obtained for the experiment. The middle cup was half filled with 0.5 M NH4NO3, while the other cups were half filled with Al(NO3)3, Cu(NO3)2, and Fe(NO3)3. Three filter papers were folded into a U-shape and used as a salt bridge. Iron, aluminum, and copper were obtained and sand paper was used to make them “shine”. A voltmeter was set to volts and both ends were attached to the metals and partially submerged into their matching solutions. The potential was then measured. Data
