Chemistry 1 of 3
WHEN you switch on, say, your trusty flashlight, electric current in the form of electrons powers the bulb. That happens because the anode material, zinc (ZN) gives up two electrons (e-) per atom in a process called oxidation. This process leaves unstable zinc ions (ZN2+) behind. (An ion is an atom that has gained or lost electrons so has a positive or negative charge.) Now, click on the mock cell to the left to see what happens next.
