In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- The fact that identical electrons were emitted from cathodes of a range of materials under a range of conditions strongly suggested that the electron is a fundamental constituent of all atoms.
- An electron originating near the planar cathode and ultimately collected at electrode A will induce an equal charge at A and B during most of its journey.
- Those same ions would then flow to the cathode, and after electrons were added, would end up as pure copper.
- The opening focuses the electrons emitted from the cathode onto the anode to a spot size preferably less than 40 nanometers.
- Oxygen enters at the cathode, where it combines with electrons and is split into ions that travel through the electrolyte to react with fuel at the anode.
