why does cell has 2 termimals?
Asked by vicaz261 | 26th Nov, 2017, 12:43: PM
An electric cell has two terminals, one negative and one positive, because, current cannot pass to only one side. It can only travel through two opposite sides.So a circuit is to be formed in order to transfer chemical reactions and deposition of electrons in anode causes electrical difference in both positive terminal and negative terminal.
