NCERT Class XII Chemistry: Chapter 3 – Electrochemistry

National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) Book for Class XII
Subject: Chemistry
Chapter: Chapter 3 – Electrochemistry

After studying this Unit, you will be able to

  • describe an electrochemical cell and differentiate between galvanic and electrolytic cells;
  • apply Nernst equation for calculating the emf of galvanic cell and define standard potential of the cell;
  • derive relation between standard potential of the cell, Gibbs energy of cell reaction and its equilibrium constant;
  • define resistivity (ρ), conductivity (κ) and molar conductivity (m) of ionic solutions;
  • differentiate between ionic (electrolytic) and electronic conductivity;
  • describe the method for measurement of conductivity of electrolytic solutions and calculation of their molar conductivity;
  • justify the variation of conductivity and molar conductivity of solutions with change in their concentration and define Λ°m (molar conductivity at zero concentration or infinite dilution);
  • enunciate Kohlrausch law and learn its applications;
  • understand quantitative aspects of electrolysis;
  • describe the construction of some primary and secondary batteries and fuel cells;
  • explain corrosion as an electrochemical process.
