7/13/09 LAU/PHYS 1302 chap21 12-4 Example of source of constant potential difference A Voltaic cell (a chemical battery) is a source of constant potential difference by using chemical energy to separate positive and negative charges. PbO 2 (anode) Pb (cathode) H 2 SO 4 + H 2 O Discharing: Anode: PbO 2 + H 2 SO 4 + 2e + 2H + PbSO 4 + 2H 2 O Cathode: Pb + SO 4 -- PbSO 4 + 2e

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
