Explain why does a galvanic cell stop working over a period of time?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 22nd Jun, 2016, 02:36: PM
In a galvanic cell, the transfer of electrons from anode to cathode leads to a net positive charge around the anode and a net negative charge around the cathode. The positive charge around anode prevents electrons to flow out from it so the potential difference becomes zero and the cell stops after sometime.

- Calculate the no. Of coulpmb required to deposit 40.5g AL when the electrode rxn is AL3+ +3e--->AL
- when zinc plate is dipped into a blue coloured solution of cuso4 then its colour becomes white why
- cell constant G*= l /A Here A stands for area of Electrode or Electrolytic solution
