Electrolytes — Strong, Weak, and Non Electrolytes 2

Electrolytes are chemicals that break into ions (ionize) when they are dissolved in water. The positively-charged ions are called cations, while the negatively charged ions are called anions. Substances can be categorized as strong electrolytes, weak electrolytes, or nonelectrolytes. Strong Electrolytes Strong electrolytes completely ionize in water. This means 100% […]

New Electrolyte Combination Creates Longer Life For Batteries

Traditional batteries contain three parts: a cathode, anode and an electrolyte. Each part serves a function. The cathode generates a positive charge, the anode carries a negative charge, and the electrolyte carries ions between the two electrodes. Scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have found a way to alter the arrangement. They created […]
