Electrochemistry worksheet

The branch of chemistry that deals with the study of chemical reaction, ionic conduction that takes place under solution is known as electrochemistry.

Electro-chemistry plays a vital role in understanding a situation where oxidation and reduction are separated in a same time, connected by an external electric circuit.

Here, you can find some questions related to “Electrochemistry” and their answers:

(d)   None of these


2. Faraday constant:

(a)    Depends on equivalent

(b)   Is a numerical constant

(c)    Depends on the number of electrons

(d)   Depends upon the current passed


3. The conduction of electricity through the electrolyte solution is due to:

(a)    Movement of molecules of electrolyte
