LEAD-ACID STORAGE BATTERIES
LEAD-ACID STORAGE BATTERIES155. Lead-acid batteries.A large portion of the following information in this section on lead-acid batteries has been taken from the literature of the Electric Storage Battery Co. In the charged condition the active materials consist of lead peroxide on the positive plate and sponge lead on the negative plate. The electrolyte is a mixture of sulfuric acid and water. The strength of the electrolyte is measured in terms of specific gravity, which is the ratio of the weight of a given volume of electrolyte to an equal volume of water. Concentrated sulfuric acid has a specific gravity of about 1.830; water has a specific gravity of 1.000. The acid and water are mixed in a proportion to give…
