Daniell Cell #ith Constr$ction and Working Daniell cell is the si%plest voltaic or galvanic cell& t converts che%ical energy into electrical energy spontaneo$sly&
Constr$ction: Daniell cell consists o' t#o hal'!cells& (ne hal'!cell is )inc rod dipped in *M +nS(, sol$tion& -he other hal'!cell is copper rod dipped in a sol$tion o' *M C$S( ,& " poro$s partition or a salt .ridge separates the t#o hal'!cells 'ro% each other& -he t#o electrodes are connected together externally .y a %etal #ire thro$gh a volt%eter are prod$ced here so anode is the negative electrode& -he copper rod acts as cathode #here red$ction takes place& Electrons are here so cathode is the positive electrode&
Working: -he hal' reactions can .e vie#ed as a co%petition .et#een t#o kinds o' %etal ato%s 'or electrons& n this case )inc ato%s are %ore reactive and their tendency to lose electrons is greater than that o' copper& Both the reactions take place si%$ltaneo$sly at .oth the hal'!cell s& n this cell/ electrons travel in the external circ$it thro$gh the #ire 'ro% the )inc anode to the copper cathode& ' a .$l. is in the circ$it/ it #ill light $p& ' there is a volt%eter/ it #ill sho# the voltage& -o co%plete the circ$it/ .oth the positive and negative ions %ove thro$gh the a0$eo$s sol$tions via the salt .ridge& n this process/ +n electrode dissolves in the sol$tion o' +nS(, and red$ces in si)e #hile C$ electrode gro#s in si)e d$e to the deposition o' copper %etal& Daniell cell generates an electric
