Just before charging the battery, again fill with 1.275 electrolyte to 3/8 inch over the top of the separators.
The progress of the charge is generally determined by the density of the electrolyte.
This is probably due, in most cases at least, to the action of the electrolyte upon the colloidal condition of the enzyme.
This acid diffuses into the electrolyte as fast as the amount of sulphate will permit.
In making tests with the hydrometer, the electrolyte should always be returned to the same cell from which it was drawn.
The resistance is lowest when the acid forms 30% of the electrolyte.
The surface of the electrolyte should be not less than one-half inch above the tops of the plate.
Fig. 31 shows the correct height of electrolyte in an Exide cell.
(e) electrolyte has been spilled in measuring specific gravity.
The reading will be the number on the stem at the surface of the electrolyte in the tube, Fig. 36.
electrolyte e·lec·tro·lyte (ĭ-lěk'trə-līt')
A chemical compound that ionizes when dissolved or molten to produce an electrically conductive medium.
Any of various ions, such as sodium or chloride, required by cells to regulate the electric charge and flow of water molecules across the cell membrane.
