Lesson Plan: Electrolysis of Salt Solutions Chemistry • 10th Grade
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to predict the products of electrolysis of aqueous salt solutions using the reactivity series.
Students will be able to
- predict the products of electrolysis of aqueous electrolytes, using inert electrodes,
- write half-equations for reactions occurring at the anode and cathode of voltaic cells.
Students should already be familiar with
- the reactivity series of metals,
- electrolysis of a melt,
- ionic half-equations.
Students will not cover
- links to standard values from the electrochemical series and the products discharged.
