X more readily reacts to form cation the Y does
Consider a galvanic (voltaic) cell that has the generic metals X and Y as electrodes. If X is more reactive than Y (that is, X more readily reacts to form a cation than Y does), classify the following descriptions by whether they apply to the X or Y electrode.
electrons in the wire flow toward
electrons in the wire flow away
cations from salt bridge flow toward
anions from salt bridge flow toward
