6Outline Ed’s demos Balancing Redox Reactions Electrochemistry Electrochemical cells and Standard Hydrogen ElectrodesNernstQuantifying current
10Thinking back…. What happened when Na(s) was added to water? Na(s) + H2O(l) Na+ (aq) H2(g) + OH-(aq)Determine the oxidation state of each reactant and productWhat was oxidized?What was reduced?
11Balancing Redox Reactions MBalancing Redox ReactionsWhen KMnO4 (potassium permanganate) is mixed with Na2C2O4 (sodium oxalate) under acidic conditions, Mn+2(aq) ions and CO2(g) form.The unbalanced chemical equation is:KMnO4(aq) + Na2C2O4(aq) Mn+2(aq) + CO2(g) + K+(aq) + Na+(aq)K+ and Na+ are spectator ions, so we can ignore them at this point.MnO4- (aq) + C2O4-2(aq) Mn+2(aq) + CO2(g)
12Half-Reactions Reduction reaction Oxidation reaction M MnO4- (aq) + C2O4-2(aq) Mn+2(aq) + CO2(g)Reduction reactionOxidation reactionReduction rxn MnOxidation C
13Reduction reaction M MnO4- Mn+2 Step 1: Balance all elements other than oxygen and hydrogen.Step 2: Balance the oxygens by adding water.Step 3: Balance the hydrogens using H+Step 4: Balance the electronsMn+7 on reactants sideMn+2 on products sideStep 5: Check charge balance and elemental balance
19ADefinitionsElectrochemical cell: A combination of anode, cathode, and other materials arranged so that a product-favored redox reaction can cause a current to flow or an electric current can cause a reactant-favored redox reaction to occurVoltaic cell (battery): An electrochemical cell or group of cells in which a product-favored redox reaction is used to produce an electric current.Galvanic cell: A cell in which an irreversible chemical reaction produces electrical currentElectrolytic cell: electrochemical reactions are produced by applying electrical energy
20A Copper-Zinc battery – What Matters? Consider reduction potentials:Cu+2 + 2e- → Cu(s) VZn+2 + 2e- → Zn(s) VPlace Zn electrode in copper sulfate solution – What happens?Copper is plated on Zn electrodeCu+2 + 2e- → Cu(s) VZn(s) → Zn+2 + 2e VE > 0, spontaneousCu+2 + Zn(s) → Zn+2 + Cu(s) 1.1 VNote, no need for electron to flow external to cell for reaction to occur!!
21A Copper-Zinc battery – What Matters? Consider reduction potentials:Cu+2 + 2e- → Cu(s) VZn+2 + 2e- → Zn(s) VPlace Cu electrode in zinc sulfate solution – What happens?Zn doesn’t plate on copper electrode?!Cu(s) → Cu+2 + 2e VZn+2 + 2e- → Zn(s) VE < 0, not spontaneousZn+2 + Cu(s) → Cu+2 + Zn(s) -1.1 VNo reaction occurs !!
23AWhat are the ½ reactions?What is the overall reaction?Identify the oxidation, reduction, anode, and cathode
24SHE: Standard Hydrogen Electrode 2 H3O+(aq, 1.00 M) + 2e- <->H2(g, 1 atm) + 2H2O(l)Eo = 0VStandard conditions:1M, 1atm, 25oCRedox Reactions & Galvanic CellsIn order to compare the potential difference when different metals are used for the anode and the cathode, each half reaction is compared to a standard half reaction. This process is like choosing par in golf. The par for a hole in golf is set at the standard. Golfers scores are then measured relative to par.The freedom to set the cell potential difference equal to zero for this reaction is the same freedom we have to set any height equal zero wherever is convenient when we work with gravitational potential energy. We have this freedom because we are not interested in the absolute potential of a reaction, rather we are only interested in the magnitude of the change in potential.Fig. 19-7, p.922
25Measuring Relative Potentials Measuring Relative PotentialsTable of StandardReduction Potentials
26Standard Reduction Potentials What is the standard potential of a Au+3/Au/Mg+2/Mg cell?
27AThe half-reaction with the more positive standard reduction potential occurs at the cathode as reduction.The half-reaction with the more negative standard reduction potential occurs at the anode as oxidation.
