Lead acid battery experiment reaction

  1. Jul 2, 2010 #1
    My set up was simply putting two lead plates in to a beaker of sulphuric acid, then connect the lead plates to a power supply. What is the reaction for charging and discharging the cell? All equations I could found contain lead (IV) oxide... Is the reactions of my set up differ from a real commercial lead acid battery?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
