2. Of or relating to electricity flowing as a result of chemical activity.
3. Relating to electricity generated by a chemical reaction.
A galvanic cell is an electric cell; such as, found in household and car batt4ries, that makes use of galvanic reactions to act as a power source.
2. A technique by which sensors monitor the skin's electrical resistance to treat anxiety disorders, chronic pain, hyperhidrosis, and stress.
3. A transient change in certain electrical properties of the skin, associated with the sweat gland activity and elicited by any stimulus that evokes an arousal or orienting response.
Originally it was termed the psychogalvanic reflex, which later became known as the galvanic skin response.
2. A serial arrangement of metallic elements or ions according to their electrode potentials determined under specified conditions; the order shows the tendency of one metal to reduce the ions of any other metal below it in the series.
3. A series in which the metals and other substances are listed in the order of their chemical reactivity or electrode potentials, the most reactive at the top and the less reactive at the bottom.
4. A tabulation on which various substances; such as, metals or elements, are listed according to their chemical reactivity or standard electrode potential.
It is usually ordered with increasing standard electrode potentials (most negative on top).
For metals, the order indicates the tendency to spontaneously reduce the ions of any other metal below it in the series.
During electrolytic reduction of cations (for example, electroplating) an element lower in the series (more positive) will deposit first, and an element higher in the series (more negative) will deposit only when the solution is practically depleted of the ions of the first element.
2. A galvanic cell, or two or more such cells electrically connected to produce energy.
2. Electrochemical corrosion associated with the current in a galvanic cell, caused by dissimilar metals in an electrolyte because of the difference in potential (emf) of the two metals.
The abbreviation emf refers to "electromotive force" or the cell voltage of a galvanic cell measured when there is no current flowing through the cell.
In other words, the equilibrium electrode potential difference between the two electrodes of the cell.
2. A pair of unlike substances; such as, metals, which generate a voltage when brought in contact with an electrolyte.
3. Two dissimilar conductors in contact or in the same electrolytic solution, resulting in a difference of potential between them.
2. A steady direct current; especially, one that is produced chemically.
2. A cell consisting of two dissimilar metal electrodes in a solution that acts chemically on one or both of them to produce a voltage: Jack, the auto mechanic, stated that the battery or primary cell in the car was dead and could not be recharged; so, it would need to be replaced.
