Instead, positive electricity flows spontaneously within the cell from right to left. 24), is negative 30 THERMODYNAMICS: CORROSION TENDENCY AND ELEC TRODE POTENTIALS (anode). This expresses the fact formulated earlier that, in any differential aeration cell, the electrode in contact with lower-pressure oxygen tends to be the anode, and the electrode in contact with higher-pressure oxygen tends to be the cathode.

2 DEFINITION OF ANODE AND CATHODE A combination of two electrical conductors (electrodes) immersed in an electrolyte is called a galvanic cell in honor of Luigi Galvani, a physician in Bologna, Italy, who published his studies of electrochemical action in 1791. A galvanic cell converts chemical energy into electrical energy. On short-circuiting such a cell (attaching a low-resistance wire to connect the two electrodes), positive current flows through the metallic path from positive electrode to negative electrode.
