electrons flow from the anode to the cathode
anode → decrease concentration
cathode → increase concentration
Consider the concentration cell in Fig. 17‑10. If the Fe 2+ concentration in the right compartment is changed from 0.1 M to 1 x 10-7 M Fe2+, predict the direction of electron flow, and designate the anode and cathode compartments.
