The positive pole of an electric battery pack or more strictly the electrode through which the current enters the electrolyte on its way to the other pole against cathode
- the negatively charged terminal of a voltaic mobile or storage electric battery that supplies existing
- a positively charged electrode in which electrons leave an electric product
- The good pole of an electric battery pack, or more strictly the electrode by which the existing enters the electrolyte coming to others pole; -- opposed to cathode.
The element of an electrolytic cellular called an electrode in which oxidation takes place typically causing corrosion.
1834, coined from Greek anodos "way up," from ana "up" (see ana-) + hodos "way" (see cede). Proposed by the Rev. William Whewell (1794-1866), English polymath, and posted by English chemist and physicist Michael Faraday (1791-1867). So-called through the course the electric current had been considered to just take. Related: Anodic.
Electrode in an electrolytic cell in which oxidation (and often corrosion) happens.
In a cathode ray tube, the positive electrode.
(n.) The good pole of an electrical electric battery, or maybe more purely the electrode in which the present enters the electrolyte returning to another pole; -- in opposition to cathode.
Borchers uses the alloy, granulated, in an anode chamber separated from the cathode cell by a porous partition through which the current, but not electrolyte, can pass freely.
