Electrode potential is the potential difference between the electrode and the surrounding electrolyte.
If the potential of the cathode is positive this means that the potential of the electrode is greater than the potential of the electrolyte, which means that the electrons will flow from the electrolyte to the cathode.
Shouldn't it be the other way around? shouldn't electrons flow from the cathode to electrolyte meaning the electrode potential should be negative?
Similarly, we can say that the electrode potential for an anode is positive.
Can someone point out the faults in this reasoning?
