Description: A corrosion cell is effectively a 'battery' that delivers energy/electrons. Electronic devices can be connected to the anode and cathode in order to utilise the current. For corrosion to occur, four components are essential. These are: an anode, a cathode, an electronic conductor, and an ionic conductor. This animation shows the four different parts of a corrosion cell.
Keywords: corrosion cell • anode • cathode • conductor
