Question

What is the difference between DANIELL CELL,GALVANIC CELL,VOLTAIC CELL and ELECTROLYTIC CELL?


Solution

A voltaic cell is an electrochemical cellthat uses a chemical reaction to produce electrical energy
 
 The Daniell cell is a type of electrochemical cell invented in 1836 by John Frederic Daniell, a British chemist and meteorologist, and consisted of a copper pot filled with a copper (II) sulfate solution, in which was immersed an unglazed earthenware container filled with sulfuric acid and a zinc electrode
 
 A galvanic cell, or voltaic cell, named after Luigi Galvani, or Alessandro Volta respectively, is an electrochemical cellthat derives electrical energy from spontaneous redox reactions taking place within the cell.

ELECTROLYTIC cell 
An electrolytic cell is an electrochemical cell that drives a non-spontaneous redox reaction through the application of electrical energy. They are often used to decompose chemical compounds, in a process called electrolysis
