Primary cells cannot be recharged effectively because their reaction products are not in contact with the electrodes. True or false?
I got it correct just by rote-learning the theory so the answer is true. But when I tried to understand it properly I'm getting confused between a galvanic cell and a primary cell. They both work on the same principles (chemical energy is converted to electrical), but they are not the same thing? Since in galvanic cells are where there are 2 beakers with 2 electrodes, 1 in each, their products are always in contact with electrodes, opposed to primary cells where it is not modelled in the same way (i.e. just a battery where the products can move away from the electrodes)?
