. Which process (oxidation/reduction) takes place at the anode of a galvanic cell?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The process (oxidation/reduction) which takes place at anode of the galvanic cell is to be predicted.

Concept Introduction:

Oxidation involves the loss of an electron by an atom or an ion. Reduction involves the gain of an electron by an atom or an ion.

An oxidizing agent accepts the electrons from other substances while a reducing agent loses the electrons to other substances.

Explanation

Galvanic cell is an electrochemical cell consists of two half-cells. Each half cell contains a metal and its salt solution. The salt solution composed of an anion and a cation.

Anode and cathode electrodes are present in galvanic cell. Anode acts as a negative pole whereas cathode acts as a positive pole...
