What is electrochemistry?

Electrochemistry is the branch of chemical science where we study the flow of electricity through electrolyte solution or metallic conductors by the movement of electrons. Acids bases and salts in a state of solution or fused state conduct electricity and are called electrolytes.

Electrochemistry is branch of chemical science where we study flow of electricity in an electrolyte solution or conductorUnlike metallic conductors, electrolytes conduct electricity by changed of particles in matter. Such transfer of matter leads to the decomposition at points where electricity enters and leaves the electrolytes. The decomposition of electrolytes due to the passage of electricity is called electrolysis.

In this part of learning chemistry, we discuss different topics related to electrochemistry.
