What is the difference between voltaic and galvanic cells?

Hello,

Could you explain the purpose of a galvanic cell and what it is? Thank you!

Voltaic and galvanic cells are the same thing, they are both electrochemical cells.

Galvanic cells harness the electrical energy available from the electron transfer in a redox reaction to perform useful electrical work such as powering radios, watches, ect. The key to gathering the current, or electron flow, is to separate the oxidation and reduction half-reactions by connecting them with a wire in order to have the electrons flow through that wire.
