Electrolysis and Voltaic Cells
A B C D E F G
the design of a voltaic cell.
the activity series of metals to predict the direction of electron flow
within a particular voltaic cell.
section 5.C.1 Electrolysis and Voltaic Cells (pp. 452--453.)
a model of a voltaic cell (similar to figure 5.31 on page 453) using Mg
metal, Mg(NO3)2 solution, Ag metal, and AgNO3 solution. Label the wire,
silver electrode, magnesium electrode, salt bridge, solution of silver nitrate,
and solution of magnesium nitrate. Also, show the direction of flow of electrons.
how you predicted the direction of electron flow.
