Galvanic cells

Postby Simrina Desar Dis 1H » Sun Feb 18, 2018 10:36 pm

Would a galvanic cell ever have more than one cathode/anode ?

You can add more cathodes or anodes in a real life reaction by splitting a cathode/anode however I don't believe we would be tested on this in this course as it's not a concept that adds anything to the material.

In general I think for the purposes of this class you are looking for the transfer of electrons from one half reaction to the next. There would thus be two cells in system.
