Explain why does a galvanic cell stop working over a period of time?

Asked by Topperlearning User 22nd June 2016, 2:36 PM
Answered by Expert

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.
