COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

The objective of this course is to develop the student’s abilities needed for experimental work and measurement processes. The course helps the student to understand the nature of the electrochemical reactions and the peculiarities of electrochemical kinetics.

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

Enrolled in or passed the course Electrochemistry

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- use theory to understand/predict experimental observations
- explain the nature of the electrochemical terms, the nature of electrochemical reactions, and the kinetics of electrochemical reactions
- plan and perform electrochemical experiments
- identify and demonstrate the safe and correct use of measurement and laboratory equipment
- perform measurements, analysis and testing in the laboratory with the appropriate lab equipments and software
- document scientific information and experimental data and write scientific reports, with graphical presentation of data
- demonstrate teamwork skills.

Course content broken down in detail by weekly class schedule (syllabus)

Eight laboratory exercises to accompany the course of lectures on Electrochemistry.
Ex. 1 Electrolyte decomposition voltage
Ex. 2 Electrogravimetric analysis
Ex. 3 Determination of the Tafel constants
Ex. 4 Electrochemical production of calcium gluconate
Ex. 5 Electrorefining of silver
Ex. 6 Electrochemical energy sorces
Ex. 7 Cyclic voltamerty of Fe3+/Fe2+ redox couple
Ex. 8 The influence of the salt solution composition on corrosion behaviour of
Al-2.5Mg alloy

Quality assurance methods that ensure the acquisition of exit competences

Quality assurance will be performed at three levels:
(1) University Level;
(2) Faculty Level by Quality Control Committee;
(3) Lecturer’s Level.
