Watch this webinar to learn about electrochemical cells. You will review oxidation and reduction reactions, schematic diagrams, and applications related to electrochemistry, such as batteries.
At a glance
Be able to read half-reaction tables of standard reductions and oxidations
Determine if a cell is galvanic or electrolytic
Be able to read galvanic cell shorthand
Identify half-reactions for diagrammed cells
Reduction and oxidation
Galvanic and electrolytic cell set ups and their differences
Know what happens at cathode and anode electrodes, positive and negative terminals
On the MCAT
You are not expected to memorize standard reduction potentials and the test will always provide whatever you need in either a table or within a passage
Usually the test will write out half-reactions for you but not always
Diagrams can be very helpful at deducing reactions and proper current flow
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
