Explain how areas of anode and cathode effect the rate of corrosion.
1 Answer

Effect of Cathodic & Anodic area:

  • If catholic area is small & anodic area is large & requirement of electron is very less which can be easily satisfied by large anode & corrosion is not very serious.

  • On the contrary if anodic area is small & cathodic area is large so requirement of electron is larger which can not satisfied by small anode then corrosion is very serious which is beyond control
