MCQs on Electrochemistry

Electrochemistry is concerned with charges and with their movement and transfer from one medium to another. The ultimate unit of charge is that carried by the electron, electrons are important in electrochemistry and their functions here are similar to some of those which they exhibit in related disciplines more usually regarded as the province of physics. The science of thermionics is built on the exchange of electrons between a solid and a vacuum; that of transistor electronics is based on their transfer between one solid phase and another.
