diagram! :)

Where does each of the following occur (Letter-wise)? Cathode: D Anode: ??? Battery: E Where oxidation occurs: ??? Positive terminal: G Negative terminal: H ***the ones where i put the letters are what i think it is, but i'm not very sure... and i have no clue for anode and where oxidation occurs... do y'all get this? :)

how do you say cathode is D?

Well, i dont think that cathode is D. Was it given initially that D is cathode or is it just according to you @iheartfood ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
because the cathode is the metal in the solution that sends electrons into the solution right? but i'm not sure I'm looking at this diagram right haha :/ like i'm not really seeing it the right way ya know? ;/ I'm not interpreting it correctly :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, haha that was what i thought.. i mean i think i have the definition of cathode down correctly right? but i'm not sure where that is applied in this diagram :(
mathslover
  • mathslover
Cathode is the metal "in the solution".... , is D present in the beaker or solution?

Check this it should help http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electroplating
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh.. no it isn't! so it has to be either F or C right? :)
mathslover
  • mathslover
Yep , good.
mathslover
  • mathslover
Well, can you say me, what is D now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay.. so based off that link, is F the cathode? And C is the anode?
ash2326
  • ash2326
yes, i heart
anonymous
  • anonymous
i'm not sure what D is haha :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooh! yay! :)
mathslover
  • mathslover
D is a conducting wire ... (or just a conductor ? :) )
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we have this so far now! :)|dw:1370147720251:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh okay i see... so i don't label D right? Cuz conductor isn't one of the things I'm labeling?

A could be flow of electrons|dw:1370147780457:dw|

A trick for you to recognize anode and cathode : Cathode is much larger than anode.
ash2326
  • ash2326
electrons goes into the positive terminal of the battery
ash2326
  • ash2326
@iheartfood battery should be easy to idenitfy
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahh okay i see... i'll keep that in mind! :) wait so oxidation happens at the anode in an electrolytic cell right? so would where oxidation happens be B?? and battery is E right? ;p
anonymous
  • anonymous
so G is positive terminal and therefore H is the negative?
mathslover
  • mathslover
What is oxidation @iheartfood ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1370147897825:dw| is that what it is then? :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
its the loss of electrons during a reaction right? :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
^^what oxidation is i meant haha :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do y'all think? :) would that be correctly labeled above now? :) ^^^ :D
mathslover
  • mathslover
Well @iheartfood , can you tell me why you said that C is anode?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh wait! you said cathode is bigger right? and in the diagram, C is bigger right? so should it be the other way around? like this? |dw:1370148222624:dw|
mathslover
  • mathslover
As per the hint given by me to you, cathode is larger than anode, in the figure, C is larger than F . So C is cathode. Also, as the negative terminal is connected to C, so C is cathode . (not anode, sorry for not pointing out the mistake earlier , I was a little bit confused)
mathslover
  • mathslover
Good!
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha don't worry about it @mathslover :) okay! yay!! so the above is all correct now right? :)
mathslover
  • mathslover
May be sometimes, you get difficulty knowing which is bigger , so use this hint : If the negative terminal is connected to the electrode, then that electrode is cathode. (Cathode has a negative charge)
anonymous
  • anonymous
but isn't C the cathode?
anonymous
  • anonymous
unless the oxidation actually occurs at D? :/ but wasn't D the conductor?
mathslover
  • mathslover
Sorry!
mathslover
  • mathslover
Oxidation occurs at F. (Anode)
anonymous
  • anonymous
its okay!! haha wait so are these correct then? :D|dw:1370148548968:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh it does? does it always occur at the anode?
mathslover
  • mathslover
yes.
mathslover
  • mathslover
Reduction always occur at Cathode and oxidation always occur at Anode.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh oaky :) |dw:1370148687342:dw| so this is the final correct answers? :D
mathslover
  • mathslover
Looks sweet to me :P , yes I think so.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, awesome!! :) Thank you so much @mathslover :)

  • mathslover
