Testing of Storage Battery

In today’s world, storage batteries are playing an important role, generally, as a backup or standby power to many applications like in telecom sectors, electric power systems, computer application to protect from data loss, etc. Battery Chargers are automatic D.C. power sources meant to feed the connected load and simultaneously charge the connected battery. It … Read more

Maintenance of Lead Acid Battery

Electrolyte of Lead Acid Battery Electrolyte of lead acid battery cell is a solution of sulfuric acid and distilled water. The specific gravity of pure sulfuric acid is about 1.84 and this pure acid is diluted by distilled water until the specific gravity of the solution becomes 1.2 to 1.23. Although, in some cases specific … Read more

Construction of Lead Acid Battery

There are mainly two parts in a lead acid battery. The container and plates. Lead Acid Battery Container As this battery container mainly contains sulfuric acid hence the materials used for making a lead acid battery container must be resistant to sulfuric acid. The material container should also be free from those impurities which are … Read more

Working of Lead Acid Battery | Lead Acid Secondary Storage Battery

Working of Lead Acid Battery The storage battery or secondary battery is such a battery where electrical energy can be stored as chemical energy and this chemical energy is then converted to electrical energy as and when required. The conversion of electrical energy into chemical energy by applying external electrical source is known as charging … Read more

Ionization Process and Definition

Ionization It is found that when some particular types of substances are added to water, they get dissolved and their molecules get split into negative and positive ions. This process of splitting up of molecules in positive and negative ions in solution is generally referred as ionization. So definition of ionization can be as follows, … Read more

Applications of Electrolysis Electroplating Electroforming Electrorefining

Applications of Electrolysis Electrolytic Refining of Metals The process of electrolytic refining of metals is used to extract impurities from crude metals. Here in this process, a block of crude metal is used as anode, a diluted salt of that metal is used as electrolyte and plates of that pure metal is used as cathode. … Read more

Principle of Electrolysis of Copper Sulfate Electrolyte

Electrolysis Electrolysis is an electrochemical process by which current passes from one electrode to another in an ionized solution that is an electrolyte. In this process, positive ions or cations come to the negative electrode or cathode and negative ions or anions come to the positive electrode or anode. Before understanding the principle of electrolysis, … Read more
