Designing and Constructing Galvanic Cells: An Introduction to Electrochemistry 

students working in a lab

galvanic cells

The CSOE has developed an active-learning based electrochemistry lab for First Year Undergraduate Chemistry Courses.  The lab is split into 4 parts.  Students learn about the reduction potentials of various heavy metals, study how concentrations of metal salts influence the potential of a galvanic cell, and then construct galvanic cells using different metals.  Finally, they apply the concepts they learned to design and optimize a galvanic cell to power an LED light bulb.  Send an email to csoe@chem.utah.edu if you would like to receive student and instructor materials.
