What Is the Difference between Anode and Cathode?

Answer

The difference between anode and cathode is that anode is where the oxidation reaction takes place while cathode is where the reduction reaction takes place. They are both found in any device that is used for drawing the electric current. A cathode is always on the negative pole while the anode is on the positive pole.
