Highclare A Level Chemistry Students Have The Power

Posted: 27th February 2019

As part of our work on Electrochemistry, our A2 Chemistry students have been busy setting up their own Electrochemical Cells and measuring its resulting EMF.

Students were then able to use this technique to compare the electrode potentials of different metals. Using concepts previously learned about redox reactions, it gave an insight into how a commercial cell (battery) works and how it is able to provide a circuit with a voltage.

In A level chemistry, students are required to complete 12 Required Practicals, in addition to other experiments that aid our understanding of the topics being covered. At Highclare Senior School we are fortunate to have a comprehensive range of laboratory equipment that allows us to fully practise our practical techniques. Seeing the chemical concepts that we have learned “in action” is hugely valuable and absolutely one of the favourite parts of the course!
