  5. NO, NO, NO. The definition of the anode is:
    The anode is where oxidation occurs. It is NEVER the definition of the electrode that is positive ALTHOUGH, the anode IS positive in electrolytic cells but is negative in galvanic cells. But the definition of the anode being where oxidation occurs is correct all the time.
