Definition of the noun anode

What does anode mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: anodes

  1. a positively charged electrode by which electrons leave an electrical device
  2. the negatively charged terminal of a voltaic cell or storage battery that supplies current
    • lexical domain: Artifacts - nouns denoting man-made objects
    • antonym: cathode
    • more generic words: pole / terminal = a contact on an electrical device (such as a battery) at which electric current enters or leaves
    • part of: accumulator / storage battery = a voltaic battery that stores electric charge; galvanic cell / primary cell / voltaic cell = an electric cell that generates an electromotive force by an irreversible conversion of chemical to electrical energy

Alternative definition of the noun anode


  1. the electrode of an electrochemical cell at which oxidation occurs
  2. the electrode through which current flows into a cell (the positive terminal of an electrolytic cell or the negative terminal of a galvanic cell)
  3. (considered incorrect usage by some) the terminal through which current flows into a diode when current is in the forward direction regardless of the direction the current is actually flowing
  4. the electron-collecting electrode of a vacuum tube
