Question:

why does cell voltage change slightly while you were observing it? Explain what is occurring at the electrode that causes the observed voltage to change.

Battery:

Batteries are devices that store charge and electrical energy. Typically, common batteries contain electrochemical cells that react upon being connected to a closed loop circuit. The voltage of the battery provides a "force" that allows the charges to move because of the potential difference between the two cells in the battery.

Electrons are motivated to power circuits through voltage sources, which can be clearly seen in batteries and other everyday items. Generators can come in the form of nuclear, coal, natural gas, hydroelectric, and wind power to generate voltage. In this lesson, learn about energy conversion, voltage, voltage sources, and examples of these things in everyday life, including batteries and generators.
