Page 1-4 - The electrolytic solution pressure of the metal is greater than the osmotic pressure of the ions, so that positive metal ions will pass into the solution. As a result the metal is left with a negative charge, while the solution becomes positively charged. There is thus set up across the interface an electric field which attracts positive ions towards the metal and tends to pre- FIG. 36.— Origin of the eiecvent any more passing into trode potentlal diflerence
Page 1-18 - In words, therefore, the vapor pressure of the solvent in a solution is directly proportional to the mole fraction of the solvent, if Raoult's law is obeyed.
Page 1-10 - Electrodes of the second type consist of a metal and a sparingly soluble salt of this metal in contact with a solution of a soluble salt of the same anion.
