Voltaic Cells In an earlier portion of this text, it was explained that various dissimilar substances have opposite polarities with respect to one another and that when two such substances are rubbed together, one will have a positive charge and the other a negative charge. Dissimilar metals also have this property, and when two such metals are placed in contact with each other, there will be a momentary flow of electrons from the one having a negative characteristic to the one having a positive characteristic. If two plates of dissimilar metals are placed in a chemical solution called an electrolyte, opposite electric charges will be established on the two p…
