I studied that in the above setup electrons are attracted by Cu because of their reduction potential but they don't involve in reaction because of the d-bands of the electronic structure so Hydrogen accepts the electron and become as Hydrogen gas
My question is why don't the H+ ions absorb electrons near the Zinc strip itself, why the electrons are travelling through the external load to combine with H+ on the other electrode instead of combining to them at the Zinc strip itself
If the above scenario is impossible to happen How the H+ ions are combining with released electrons near the Zinc strip in the Activity of putting a Zinc strip inside a beaker with dilute sulphuric acid
I would also like to know why this is not as popular as Salt bridge experiment (Is this an inefficient way of producing electricity?) I was unable to find much resources on these kind of setups(Without salt bridge) on the internet.
Please correct me If I made any silly mistakes ;)
There is a similar Question regarding the electrolysis process but I had some uncleared doubts
