Consider the following hydrogen fuel cell
At the anode, hydrogen is oxidised (losing electrons). My first question is this: why is the anode negative if it is attracting electrons?
My second question refers to the fact that once the hydrogen atoms are iodised, the H+ ions move through the electrolyte towards the oxygen ions at the cathode, reacting to form water. If the anode is negative, why would positive H+ ions move away from it?
