5) According to this definition, the OCV is always positive (provided the potentials of both electrodes are referred to the same reference electrode). Thermodynamically, electrode reactions can be either reversible or irreversible. In case of a reversible reaction, the electrode potential is called reversible (thermodynamic electrode potential). The corresponding OCV is traditionally called “electromotive force” (EMF) and is denoted as ????. 6) ????= nF where ΔG is the difference of the Gibbs energy G during the current-producing reaction—the difference of the Gibbs energies of all reactants and all reaction products—n is the number of electrons taking part in one elementary act of the electrode reaction, F = 96485 C/mol is the Faraday constant.

A surface layer of lead dioxide was produced by electrochemical reactions in the first charge cycle. Later developments led to electrodes made by pasting a mass of lead oxides and sulfuric acid into grids of lead–antimony alloy (for lead acid batteries the electrodes are often called plates). 1 Current-Producing Reactions In the charged lead battery, the negative electrode contains sponge lead; the positive electrode contains lead dioxide PbO2 . 12) ch (at the concentrations used in the batteries, sulfuric acid is practically dissociated into H+ and HSO4 − ions).
