Physics an electrolytic cell that measures the quantity of electric charge flowing through it by a resulting chemical action, as by indicating the amount of gas collected or the amount of metal deposited on an electrode
A third electrolytic meter of the shunted voltameter type is that of A.
A convenient adjunct to this apparatus is a small voltameter, with the aid of which oxygen or hydrogen.
The Duration Of An Experiment Was About Ten Minutes, And The Product Of The Mean Current And The Time, Namely Ct, Was Measured By The Weight Of Silver Deposited In A Voltameter, Which Amounted To About 0.56 Gramme.
His most important contribution at this date was the invention of the voltameter and his enunciation of the laws of electrolysis.
The voltameter provided a means of measuring quantity of electricity, and in the hands of Faraday and his successors became an appliance of fundamental importance.
