Because of graphite's relatively high resistance to heat in the spark gap (as compared to copper), for most jobs it is a more efficient electrode material.
Perpendicular on pipe axis two electrodes produces an electric current through water.
One may try to explain such character of distribution of the flows, in contrast to the scheme with individual connection of each electrode in central part, by presence of the horizontal component of current along the wide electrodes and its high value, while connection in center of just narrow electrodes does not create such pattern, which is, evidently, connected with small length of these electrodes.
Researchers first developed electrodes that could measure chemical compounds in the early 1980s, but it took a couple of decades for scientists to figure out the best ways to fabricate and use them, says R.
Reactions occurring at the electrodes create a flow of electrons that generate and store energy, but the atomic structure of the electrode materials limits the amount of energy that can be stored.
