Two half cells have potentials -0.76V and -0.13V respectively.A galvanic cell is made from these two-half cells.Which of the following statements is correct?

$\begin{array}{1 1}\text{Electrode of half-cell potential -0.76V serves as cathode}\\\text{Electrode of half-cell potential -0.76V serves as anode}\\\text{Electrode of half-cell potential -0.13V serves as anode}\\\text{Electrode of half-cell -0.76V serves as positive electrode and -0.13V as negative electrode}\end{array} $

1 Answer

Answer : Electrode of half-cell potential -0.76V serves as anode
The electrode with more negative potential constitutes negative terminal (i.e, anode)
