Title: How Batteries Work Activity
Url: http://et.portal.concord.org/diy/view/43/type/ExternalOtrunkActivity/
Publisher: Concord Consortium
Description: This resource provides an introductory activity on how batteries work. As the module states, "batteries have traditionally been made from one or more electrochemical cells—a package that contains chemicals needed to run a redox reaction, but separated such that exchange of electrons happens by passing through a circuit external to the battery." The activity covers concepts such as voltage, chemical equilibrium and charge build-up, making a simple battery, and combining half reactions. This module allows students to test their knowledge as they go.
