Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Anonymous on Friday, April 2, 2010 at 4:40pm.

Hi, I was wondering if someone could clear this up for me. Anodes and cathodes. Which is which?
I'm getting mixed information from different textbooks, review books, and websites and I'm confused.
My review book states that The cathode is negative and the anode is positive, but other resources tell me otherwise. The review book also has a diagram showing cathode rays (-) flowing in the direction of the anode (+). But online it says the direction of flow is always from the anode to cathode. Is that just the case outside the device?
