In an electrochemical cell, the electrolysis process takes place. For this performing process, we require two main components such as an electrolyte solution and types of electrodes.
Basically, an electrode is classified into two types. One is an anode and another is a cathode.
The anode and cathode are immersed in an electrolyte solution to generate DC power. Depending on the cells, both electrodes have different working functions.
Let’s dive into what is the basic difference between anode and cathode in tubular form.
Anode vs Cathode
07. Representation of anode and cathode symbol in battery.
Note: The charge positions inside the battery on electrodes (anode or cathode) can vary. It means that charge position depends on the types of electrical cells.
These are 7 points that covered anode vs cathode. Also, I have described the difference between the galvanic cell and electrolytic cell.
If you have any queries regarding the difference between anode and cathode, you can ask in the comment.
