How does an electrolytic cell differ from a galvanic cell?

In ELECTROLYTIC CELL,electric current is used to derive a non-spontaneous redox reaction.Down`s cell and nelson cell are electrolytic cell. In GALVANIC CELL,electric current is produced as a result of spontaneous redox reaction.Daniel cell and fuel cell r galvanic or voltaic cell.


Who invented the voltaic cell?

A Galvanic cell, or Voltaic cell, named after Luigi Galvani, or Alessandro Volta respectively.In 1780, Luigi Galvani discovered the Galvanic cell.The volatic pile invented by Alessandro Volta in the 1800s is similar to the galvanic cell.


What is the difference between a galvanic cell and a voltaic cell?

A voltaic battery is also known as a voltaic pile, which is a set (or pile) of galvanic cells linked together in series to create a larger voltage than could be generated by a single galvanic cell. Therefore a voltaic cell would simply be one element of the pile which is also one galvanic cell.


In which direction do electrons flow in a galvanic cell?

In a galvanic cell, electrons flow from the anode to the cathode. The flow is stopped if the cell lacks a path for the ions to flow between the solutions in the cell.
