Anode/Cathode

Postby Jesse_torres2H » Tue Feb 20, 2018 7:45 pm

Which reaction relates to which, is the reduction reaction the anode and oxidation is the cathode or is it the other way around?

The anode relates to the oxidation reaction and the cathode with the reduction reaction. My TA said a way to remember this is anode and oxidation both start with vowels and cathode and reduction both start with consonants.

RED CAT is another way to remember that reduction is cathode
