Anode is in the negative side (left side of the diagram)
▪ Anode → oxidation
▪ oxidation half-reaction happens in the anode solution
▪ losing electrons → becoming more positive → anode dissolves away
Cathode is in the positive side (right side of the diagram)
▪ Cathode → reduction
▪ reduction half-reaction happens in the anode solution
▪ gaining electrons → becoming more negative → solids is deposited in the surface
