question 6.51

Postby sarahtang4B » Wed Mar 13, 2019 3:33 pm

would saying that a positively charged electrolyte flows from the anode to the cathode also be a correct answer?

Yes that is one way to interpret electrophysiology. But the default is that electrons always go towards the anode which usually is the right side. Electrons is the more important observation but this distinction of positive ions moving towards the negatively charged cathode is correct.
