    Implications behind +/- sign of anode in electrochemistry

    In a spontaneous (Galvanic, concentration) cell, the sign of the anode is (+), as anions are attracted to it in order to balance out the newly oxidized charges. Opposite occurs in the cathode. In a non-spontaneous (Electrochemical) cell, the sign of the anode is (-)... however, since oxidation...
