Cathode and anode (1)

There’s no need to PANIC if you’re asked which of the electrodes, the anode or the cathode, is positive or which is negative. Just remember that PANIC stands for:

 

Positive Anode, Negative is Cathode 

Positive Anode Negative is Cathode
PANIC: Positive Anode, Negative is Cathode.
