Either the PbO2 has been totally converted to PbSO4, or all of the SO4 ions in the electrolyte have been used up, reducing it to pure water. In either case, PbO2 and electrolyte strength have been minimized and PbSO4 maximized. Charging. By connecting a charging voltage to the cell we drive the electrons and the reaction in the reverse direction. Ideally, the negative electrode is restored to pure PbO2, the positive terminal to pure Pb, and the acid electrolyte to its maximum strength. + Load I Charger - 4 Charging PbO2 min PbSO4max + H2SO4 ↑ H2 O ↓ SG ↑ Pb ↑ PbSO4↓ PbO2 ↑ PbSO4↓ What Is a Batter y?

Next we place the test leads between 8 and 11. Now the test lamp lights up. The problem must be either in the switch or the short wire between the switch and the bulb holder. We place the test leads across 8 and 9. Now both the test lamp and the cabin light glow dimly. What’s going on? Our test lamp has bridged the broken switch, but acts like a load in series with the cabin light. This reduces the current and brightness of both bulbs. The bulb is OK, but the light switch must be replaced. Fig.
