A new HTML5-based computer simulation is being developed for this computer simulation.

Voltaic Cells Concentration Cells Nernst Cell

Computer animations (NEW BLENDER-based)  of a standard cell comprising of two half-cells: zinc metal electrode in 1.0 M ZnSO​4 solution, a copper metal electrode in a 1.0 M CuSO4 solution, and a connecting salt bridge.   The electrodes are connected to a voltmeter.  E°cell = +1.10 Volts.

If you are a chemistry instructor (high school, AP Chemistry, or college) using this Flash-based computer simulation in your chemistry classroom, please consider making a voluntary donation to the University of Oregon Foundation "Chemistry Achievement Endowment Fund".  Because Flash will soon no longer be supported by browsers, we need funding to convert this simulation to a HTML5 based computer code.  There is a letter explaining the situation and a "donate" link on the home page of this "chemdemos" web site and on TG's UO web page:  https://chemistry.uoregon.edu/profile/tgreenbo/
