How does a battery work?


Batteries work by oxidation and reduction reactions which involves transfer of electrons. A battery has two ends (cathode) a positive terminal and a (anode) negative terminal. When the two terminals are connected with a wire a circuit is formed hence a current of electricity is formed.
