Electrolytic cell is used to convert electrical energy is converted to chemical energy.
How electrolytic cell converts electrical energy is converted to chemical energy?
An electrolytic cell is a type of electrochemical cell in which electrical energy is converted into chemical energy.
The three primary components of electrolytic cells are:
- Cathode (which is negatively charged for electrolytic cells)
- Anode (which is positively charged for electrolytic cells)
Here, the anode is positive and the cathode is the negative electrode. The reaction at the anode is oxidation and that at the cathode is reduction. An electrolytic cell is an electrochemical cell that drives a non-spontaneous redox reaction through the application of electrical energy.
