14.91

Postby josephyim1L » Thu Feb 28, 2019 2:37 pm

Can someone explain 14.91 in the 6th edition to me please:

14.91 A voltaic cell functions only when the electrical circuit
is complete. In the external circuit the current is carried by the flow of electrons through a metal wire. Explain how the current is carried through the cell itself.

The solution manual states that "a negatively charged electrolyte flows from the cathode to the anode."
