Unformatted text preview: during oxidation at the anode? 1. What would happen in a galvanic cell if the neutral charge is not maintained in the half-cells? Ans: If the neutral charge is not maintained in the half-cells, a charge difference would develop between the half-cells and the reaction would stop. 2. In the Daniell cell above, with the porous barrier the positive charge in the zinc half-cell is neutralized by: a. positive ions migrating towards the anode. b. negative ions migrating towards the cathode. c. negative ions migrating towards the anode. d. positive zinc ions, Zn 2+ , being reduced to produce zinc atoms. c) negative ions migrating towards the anode....
