quiz. You will find the Nomenclature quiz listed on the Main Menu of the Chemistry 2C
Presentation Website. The Nomenclature quiz is not like a pre-lab quiz. The quiz
consists of 10 randomly selected multiple-choice questions worth a total of 20 laboratory
points. You may begin and leave the quiz at any time without penalty. However, you
cannot go back to the previous question.
See your course syllabus, TA, or your course instructor for the due date of the
Nomenclature quiz. 9 10 Electrochemical Cells
The use of electrochemical cells to convert the Gibbs energy stored in the constituent
half-reactions into electrical work is of enormous industrial as well as fundamental
significance. We have all used batteries and these are simply galvanic cells similar to
those you will construct in this experiment. In the laboratory, a typical electrochemical
(or galvanic) cell has the following general construction: Figure 1: A Schematic of a Galvanic Cell
In Figure 1, there are two electrode-compartments, each of which contains an electrode
and the constituents of the half-reac...
