How do batteries work?
|Q:||Ask a Question about How do batteries work?|
The electrodes are separated by a conducting liquid or paste, called the electrolyte. The substances in the battery react chemically with each other to produce an electrical current.
As a result of chemical activity a positive charge builds up at one electrode, and this can flow through a conductor such as a wire to the other (negative) electrode. Eventually the chemical energy runs out and the battery becomes exhausted.
A battery consists of a central positive electrode and a metal outer case which acts as the negative electrode. The space between the two is filled with a conducting paste or liquid.
