Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Nikki on Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 9:29pm.

What's the difference between a galvanic and electrolytic cell when trying to find which half-rxn is the anode or the cathode?

So like when you have two equations, depending on what kind of cell it's in, how can you tell which one is the anode and which one is the cathode?

I get really confused when trying to do electrochem problems. It'd be great if someone answered this. Thanks much!
