At which electrode does oxidation occur in a voltaic cell?

anode only

cathode only

*both anode and cathode

either anode or cathode, depending on the metal

Thank You.

    No, By definition, oxidation occurs at the anode. Reduction, of course, must then occur at the cathode.

    coz from anode the electorns flow to cathode to continue eletrolysis of water bt if copper plate is usedas anode then the electrolysis of water does not occur.........
