Electrons and ions flow

  1. Sep 18, 2013 #1
    I know that positively charged cation move toward cathode which is the negative terminal and the negatively charged anion move towards anode which is positive terminal

    Why does in galvanic cell cations are moving toward cathode which is positively terminal?

    And why in galvanic cell cathode is positive and in electrolytic cell cathode is negative?

    How could this happen?
