Question

When an electric current is passed through a cell having an electrolyte, the positive ions move towards the cathode and the negative ions towards the anode. If the cathode is pulled out of the solution :


A
the positive and negative ions will move towards the anode
loader
B
the positive ions will start moving towards the anode, the negative ions will stop moving
loader
C
the negative ions will continue to mover towards the anode and the positive ions will stop moving
loader
D
the positive and negative ions will start moving randomly
loader

Solution

The correct option is C the positive and negative ions will start moving randomly
When an electric current is passed through a cell having an electrolyte,  the positive ions move towards the cathode and the negative ions towards the anode. If the cathode is pulled out of the solution, the circuit will not be complete and the ions will have no direction and thus they will move randomly.
