- There are 2 types of electrochemical cell, namely
- Electrolytic Cell
- Voltaic Cell (or sometimes is called Galvanic Cell)
- In electrolytic cell, electric current is flowed through an electrolyte to produce a chemical reaction. Electrical energy is converted to chemical energy, and the process is called electrolysis.
- In voltaic cell, chemical is used to produce electricity. In this cell, chemical energy is converted to electrical energy.
