hey just got some redox related questions
lead acid storage battery consists of plates of spongy metallic lead and plates of spongy lead dioxide immersed in a solution of sulfuric acid. As the battery discharges the metallic lead and lead dioxide are converted to lead sulfate.
write the balance equation for each half reaction in battery:
write balanced chem equation for overall redox reaction
balance this reaction in acid solution or base?
how many electrons were transferred in the reaction?
analyze a lead acid storage battery /identify
the anode :
calculate the voltage of the cell?
explain why testing the density of the fluid in a car battery indicates if the battery needs to be recharged?
if a lead acid battery is completely discharged, the sulfuric acid solution in hte cell is very dilute. could the battery be rejuvenated simply by removing the dilute sulfuric acid and replacing it with more concentrated sulfuric acid?
suppose that you attempted to make a battery out of spongy metallic lead and spongy lead sulfate.. would it work? why/why not?
how about if you attempted with spongy lead dioxide and spongy lead sulfate?
greatly appreciate it
