When a electrochemical cell has an object (e.g. lightbulb) placed in the
path between the anode and the cathode, the electrodes polarize due to
resistance polarization...why does this happen? In other words, why does
the anode become more positive, and why does the cathode become more
negative in potential? Thank you very much for your time!
