9.2 Electrolytic Cell

A device which converts chemical energy to electrical energy is called electrolytic cell, and the process of conversion is called electrolysis. e.g. Voltameter used for electrolysis of water. Electricity is conducted by an electrolyte which is nothing but a liquid solution present in an electrochemical cell.

Electrolytic cell : It consists of a vessel with two electrodes dipped in an electrolyte. The electrode attached to the negative terminal of an external source of energy (Battery) is called the cathode and the one which connects to the positive terminal is called the anode.
