The current always flows within the cell from anode to the cathode.
He applied the current, moving the anode and the cathode slowly.
On the anode side, purple permanganate ions are seen rising toward the positive electrode.
He lifted the anode from the solution now, removed the negative, and held it up.
The animal will thus move backward easily and forward with difficulty, and it is thus driven to the anode again.
The anode is inserted into its bulb in a quite similar manner.
The gas at the anode was always oxygen; that at the cathode hydrogen.
I do not think that the formation of a crust upon the anode can be entirely prevented.
The plate where the current goes in, the anode, A (Fig. 247), loses in weight since some of the silver is dissolved.
A rod of carbon dipping into the melted salt serves as the anode.
1834, coined from Greek anodos "way up," from ana "up" (see ana-) + hodos "way" (see cede). Proposed by the Rev. William Whewell (1794-1866), English polymath, and published by English chemist and physicist Michael Faraday (1791-1867). So called from the path the electrical current was thought to take.
