Relation between Magnetism and Electricity

All of us know that whenever an electric current flows through a conductor, a magnetic field appears surrounding the conductor. Again the electric current means the flow of electrons. Hence, the motion of electrons causes … Read more

positive and negative plates of a lead acid battery

Construction of Lead Acid Battery

A lead acid battery cell consists of three main components. These are two electrodes and the electrolyte. The electrodes are of rectangular plate shape. For this reason, we call positive electrodes as positive plates and … Read more
