Electrochemistry, Batteries and Fuel Cells

  • H. D. Gesser


Electrochemistry is concerned with the effect of electrical voltages and currents on chemical reactions (ionics) and chemical changes which produce the voltages and currents (electrodics). This is illustrated in Table 9.1 where ionics is governed by Faraday’s laws whereas electrodics is determined by Nernst’s equation.
