Answer to Question #10593 in Inorganic Chemistry for dinesh shevkani

Question #10593
Respected Sir/Mam,I am student under class 12th science stream and want description about electrochemical cell.
Expert's answer
An electrochemical cell is a device that converts chemical energy into
electrical energy when a chemical reaction is occurring in a cell.
current is caused by the reactions releasing and accepting electrons at the
different ends of a conductor. In a spontaneous chemical reaction electrons are
passed directly from one element to another. In an electrochemical cell these
simultaneous redox reactions are "spatially separated" - i.e. happen at
different places. The resultant ions then combine to form a new product. During
this process electrons are conducted from the anode to the cathode through an
outside electrical current which can be used.

electrochemical cells are also called as the galvanic cell and voltiac cell it is a device which converts the chemical energy into electrical energy by the indirect redox reaction in seperate container and the decrease in the gibbs free energy produces electrical energy which can be converted to the useful work done eg denial cell
