the terminal of a battery that is connected to the negative plate
the pole of a magnet that points toward the south when the magnet is suspended freely
- Disconnect the battery negative cable.
- Some of the radiation was bent slightly toward the negative pole.
- Experience shows that the positive electrode always burns away more rapidly than the negative.
- A pool of mercury surrounds the negative electrode.
- The anode is the readout point, so it is usually operated at near-ground potential and the cathode at a high negative potential.
