Introduction to Electrochemistry
Electrochemistry is the study of chemical reactions that result in the production of electric current, and chemical reactions that occur when subjected to electric current. Electrochemical applications are part of everybody's day-to-day life. Energy storing batteries that we use for TV remotes, flashlights, automobiles are a few examples. Electroplating is another achievement among many others. In this chapter, our discussion will revolve around two types of electrochemical cells - the electrolytic cell and the galvanic cell.
