Electrochemical Cell

What is Electrochemical Cell? The electrochemical cell is the device that is used to convert the chemical energy produced in a redox reaction into electrical energy. It is also called Galvanic Cell or Voltaic Cell after the names of Luigi Galvani (1780) and Alessandro Volta (1800) who were the first to perform experiments on the conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy. Construction and Working of Electrochemical Cell: In an electrochemical cell, there are two separate containers. In one container Zinc rod is dipped into the 1M ZnSO4 solution and another container contains a copper rod that is dipped into … Continue reading Electrochemical Cell
