Hi. I've been trying to get the concept of a battery in my head but I struggle to find info. Everything I've found so far is just very basic material.
I understand the positive cathode and negative anode. I'm a bit cloudy on electrolyte. Is it a liquid/paste solution that uses some medium like paper?
This question is merely for idle curiosity, but I suspect others will be curious as well. Searching through errno.h (of Linux 2.6) I found ENOANO "No Anode". There is no sign of a "No cathode" error. Looking through kernel source concordances, it doesn't seem to be used by a device called an anode, only as a deliberately whacky error code by some obscure device drivers.
