Edison Storage Battery

Description

The positively charged electrode in an electrolytic cell, voltaic cell, battery, or plating bath. Negatively charged ions are attracted to the anode. In a plating bath, the anode is the source Metal from which the metallic ions are formed. In a corroding system, the anode is the metal at which Oxidation is occurring.
