Redox Battery Lab

Type of Resource



Through this lab, students are introduced to energy sciences as they explore redox reactions and how hydrogen fuel cells turn the energy released when hydrogen and oxygen are combined into electrical energy that can be read on a standard multimeter. They learn about the energy stored in bonds and how, by controlling the reaction, this energy can be turned into more or less useful forms.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS3-3   Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

HS-ESS3-4   Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems.
