TLF ID L8883
Set up and observe the spontaneous redox reaction that occurs between copper metal and silver nitrate solution when they are in direct contact. Then find out how this reaction can be used to generate an electric current. Set up the galvanic cell that utilises this reaction and observe what happens at the anode and the cathode. Find out the principles behind the cell design. Determine the equation for the net cell reaction from the half-equations. Explain the changes observed. This learning object is one in a series of three learning objects.
