What Are Redox Potentials?
- Classic AP Chemistry Experiment
- Instructions Included
Students will study electrochemical series. The electrochemical series is built up by arranging various redox equilibria in order of their standard electrode potentials (redox potentials). When a strip of metal (an electrode) is placed in water the metal has a tendency to go into solution as ions, with a simultaneous build up of electrons on the metal strip. This process produces an electrical potential difference between the metal and solution which is called an electrode potential (Eº).
