So if these devices were not invented, the other things we are using in this modern world would not be available for us. But there is confusion that how these small-sized cells work to run big machines and devices? From the definition of electricity, we know that it is a flow of electrons that are...

Types of batteries. What are Primary batteries and secondary battery?

Batteries are categorized into primary and secondary batteries. Now, what is primary and secondary batteries? The former is a type of battery that is once used can't be used further by recharging. The second can be recharge after using it and can use it further. The primary battery includes alkaline batteries, mercury batteries, carbon batteries and Silver-Oxide batteries the secondary battery includes Lead-Acid batteries and Lithium batteries. Now we will move further to explain the types of batteries.   Alkaline Batteries:   This...

Meaning and history of the Term ‘’Battery’’ and its applications

The term battery refers to the composition of single or multiple cells where the electrons start a flow in a circuit by the chemical reaction of those cells. The batteries are composed of two main parts that act as anode, cathode and electrolytes. The anode act as a negative side while cathode as the positive side. The electrolyte is a mixture that actually reacts chemically with the positive and negative side of the battery. A chemical reaction takes place once...
