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
