  • Electrochemistry Lab Report

    Exploring Electrochemistry Aim: The Aim of this experiment is to investigate electrochemistry including spontaneity, conductivity, galvanic cells and lead-acid cells. Spontaneous reactions will be explored by observing the two reactions below: Zn(s) + Cu2+(aq) →Zn2+(aq) + Cu(s) Zn2+(aq) + Cu(s) → Zn(s) + Cu2+(aq) Conductivity will be explored through measuring the conductivity of water and water with salts. A galvanic cell will be constructed to investigate the two halves of a redox reaction and their purpose in generating voltage. Lastly, a lead-acid battery will be constructed to investigate their uses to light a light bulb. Introduction: Imagine a world without electrochemistry, you may think this isn’t quite such a big deal. Now…

  • Floating Slimes Essay

    Silver, lead, arsenic, bismuth, antimony, selenium, and nickel are common impurities existing in copper anodes. Some impurities dissolved from the anodes can precipitate, if their concentrations in the electrolytic solution are above saturation levels. Some of these precipitates can settle down but some are floating slimes and can be a source of cathode contamination by their incorporation into the cathode 16. These floating slimes are amorphous and typically have compositions of Sb-As-O and…

  • Schematic Principles Of The Principle Of Electro Chemical Machining

    Fig. 1.1 Schematic principle of Electro Chemical Machining (ECM) 1.2 Principle of ECM Electrochemical machining removes material from the work piece by electrochemical process. The working principle is anodic dissolution in which the work piece as anode and the tool as cathode. Both electrodes are immersed in the electrolyte and electrical applied to these electrodes. The electric conduction is achieved through the movements of ions between the anode and cathode through the electrolyte. The…

  • Copper Nitrate Lab Report

    Then add in another 3.751 ± 0.001g of Cu(NO3)2 crystals in order to increase the concentration from 0.1M to 0.2M. Once again record the voltage produced. Repeat this procedure until a concentration of 0.5M copper (II) nitrate solution has been achieved. After this remove the contents of the Cu(NO3)2 beaker, and recreate a 0.1M solution. Repeat steps 8-11 for another 4 trails, continually increasing the concentration by 0.1M and recording the results. After all necessary data was…

  • The Effects Of High Organature Proton Exchange Fuel Cells

    High temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cells (HT-PEMFCs) are a promising clean technology, especially for automobile applications.1 These devices generate electricity from the chemical reactions that occur in the anode side of the cell, using H2 as a fuel and generating heat and water as by-products.2, 3 However, experimental studies using HT-PEMFCs show that degradation of the cell can occur after certain hours of operation (around 500 hours).4 Some of the factors that contribute to the…

  • Single Nannoparticles On Gold (Au) Ultramicroelectrode Lab Analysis

    ABSTRACT Current response of ascorbic acid-stabilized copper (Cu) single nanoparticles (NPs) collision on gold (Au) ultramicroelectrode (UME) surface was observed by the electrocatalytic amplification method. When the applied potential to the UME was 0.4 V, blip (or spike) response of current, which is responsible for the self-oxidation of Cu NP, was obtained. When the applied potential was over 0.5 V, the blip response combined with staircase response was obtained. The blip part indicates the…
